Activating Widows 10 LTSB 2016 afte downgrading from pre installed windows 10

HP Recommended
HP Z4 Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All,

 

We recently purchased a HP Z4 where we had to downgrade from the pre-installed windows 10 to Windows 10 LTSB 2016.

How do I activate windows since there are no stickers on the unit with a license key?

 

Thanks

Christo

I contacted Microsoft and yes the Pro license won't work for Enterprise. Need to purchase an Enterprise license...

So I managed to get the original key by using show key plus. I did that after loading back the original image I took. However going back to Windows 10 LTSB 2016 I get an error 0x80041014. Researching this error does not yield many results. I do think that maybe because LTSB is enterprise version of windows 10?
