ERROR CODE 0x80072F8F

This error code has been seen with problems in Windows activation. This occurs when the system clock is not set correctly.

To the problem reboot the machine and enter the BIOS and set the correct date and time.

Then restart the machine and you find Windows will activate properly.

If you are installing Windows 10, you can skip the serial number and set the time from the desktop. Then once that is correct you can go to Settings and activate.
