  • I installed Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Technical Preview 5 but I couldn't activate it with the provided key.

    ERROR 0x803F7000 "Windows can not connect with the activation servers, check your Internet connection"

    Of course, Internet is Ok.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post.

    Is it a fresh installation Server?

    Did you use the activation key below?

    "Upon installation, you will be prompted to activate. Windows Server 2016 Technical Preview 5 will require a product key:

    Standard Key: MFY9F-XBN2F-TYFMP-CCV49-RMYVH

    Datacenter Key: 6XBNX-4JQGW-QX6QG-74P76-72V67"

    Have you tried reboot the server and activate?

    Best Regards,

    Alivn Wang
