There is no such BIOS option as far as I know.

 

Also, to make clear what I said, as @Prométhée has also indicated, we can not provide you support in this. So please stop asking for support.

Hello
sorry, but there is nothing we can do for you here
We cannot help you bypass a means of protection, it is illegal
If you cannot activate windows for one reason or another, only microsoft can help you.

@Manishdas2020 

Your additional problem is that the HP license is ONLY for the version of Windows that came preloaded.

 

Since you are trying to replace that with a version you have installed yourself, we could not help you with activating that because by replacing the HP version, you have assumed full responsibility for the OS now on it.  So, you will have to solve this on your own.

Thanks for prompt reply @WAWood(Level 16).

I think here is a bios feature which is preventing offline activation or phone activation of windows os.

Please let me know how to disable it 

 

Again thank you

@WAWood  told you the same thing as I told you!
And I tell you again, we cannot give you the means to bypass protection!
I don't know why you can't connect to the internet, but so if you can't activate the system because of that, only microsoft could possibly help you

Either you find a solution to connect to the internet in order to proceed with the activation
either contact microsoft

Thanks for the info

But Dell is providing offline or phone activation feature in windows 10 pro for workstation 

Anyway if you are not providing the info for security reason then its ok 

if you help me further it may really help me otherwise I have to return all three machines.

 

Thank you again
