Hi all, new to this forum but I've been on tenforums for a few years. My question is if I'll have problems updating to 11. The store I bought the PC from uses KMSpico
because of the large volume of sales. Do you think this will cause problems activating 11? Here's all my info.

If you’re using a volume license then while you will be able to upgrade Microsoft may block the key if it’s being used on multiple PCs so you’ll not be able to activate Windows.

I would contact the supplier and ask them to clarify the licencing of your machine and the possibility of upgrading to 11

My experience? Because all of my computers were too old I couldn't do a default Upgrade to Win11 so got a new Notebook back in Oct. and a Desktop in April, both came with Win10 Pro. After setup and getting all the updates installed I was offered Win11 on both, never did see the panel with any date on it like shown in the OP's image.

Activation servers (KMS) through an organization or educational institution is legal, and should be used for those intents and purposes.
With that being said I'm going to check with the distributor, seems like my best bet.
Thanks for your replies

You are correct. That is obviously a legitimate activation process for individual organizations. It is NOT legitimate for the purpose of distributing activated copies of Windows to individuals or organizations that do not have volume license agreements in place with Microsoft.

What you said in your OP was KMSpico. That is in no way shape or form a legitimate activation through an organization or educational institution. It is a hack to gain free activation of Windows. Your Windows is pirated.

This is not a legitimate volume license. It is the illegimate hack, KMSpico used to gain free activation of pirated Windows.

Thanks @NavyLCDR. As the op didn’t mention they were working in a corporate environment I expected their license would be illegally activated via the KMSpico. Hence my comment concerning Microsoft. As I’m not familiar with that software I don’t know whether this can bypass Microsoft’s checks For authenticity.

fringe53 specifically stated in the third sentence of the OP that it was activated with KMSpico, which I am surprised this thread was even allowed to continue on elevenforum. I know on tenforums, the thread would have been deleted immediately. We aren't supposed to help people with pirated Windows activations.
