I'm in a Windows Domain environment and I have about 150 PC's,  All windows 10 and activated.
I'm in the middle of a software upgrade which required us to reimage all the PC's because of the large software change and needing to completely remove old software from the environment.
Some of my PC's will not activate.  I click the troubleshoot button on the activation screen and it returns a confirmation that windows is activated.  When you ok that blue screen the screen behind it says.  we can't activate Windows on this device right now. You can try activating again later or go to the Store to buy genuine Windows . error Code: 0xC004F034
I think this failure to activate is because the machine was previously activated, but it is not happening on all machines.
These Windows 10 machines are HP Prodesk 600 G1 and some G2 .  
Any brand new Prodesk G2 activates without issue.
