When Microsoft launched Windows 10, some users failed to activate Windows 10 because of server issues. I also faced the same issue while doing a clean install of Windows 10 – it didn’t activate in the first boot, then it activated by itself and deactivated again – so I just left it and after a while, my Windows is finally activated properly. However, some users are still concerned if clean installing Windows 10 will activate Windows for them – if you’re one of them, don’t fret, because Microsoft states that the activation issues has been fixed:

That means, if you have previously used a legal copy of Windows 10 with your Microsoft Account and do a clean install, Windows will get activated for you properly. It’s worth noting that if it doesn’t activate for you, just give it some time and it should activate automatically.
