1909 Gets Generic Keys

News is popping up all over the Web that generic keys for the Windows 10 November 1909 release are available. I’ll be darned if I can find the list at microsoft.com, but it’s available through countless third-party sources. I totally trust the guys at MajorGeeks.com, so that’s where the ones I reproduce come from. If 1909 gets generic keys, that means you can use the associated generic key during installation — especially useful for virtual machines (VMs) — even automated installation. You must still provide a valid key later on to activate that copy of Windows 10. But generic keys are invaluable for smooth installations, especially automated ones.

You can always use slmgr.vbs to replace a valid key with a generic one to make sure it works. Be sure to capture your valid key first!

If 1909 Gets Generic Keys, What Are They?

These keys come in two flavors. One is for Windows 10 installations that don’t use multiple activation keys (MAKs), or that don’t interact with a Key Management Server (KMS) for keys and activation. The other is for KMS-based environments. AFAIK, there are no generic MAK keys, so I can’t provide any. Here you go:

Remember, these keys are not valid for activation purposes. They are handy for installation and large-scale Windows deployment but they will not activate. Thus, they do not convey a valid Windows 10 license in any way, shape or form. You’ve been warned/notified. They’re helpful nonetheless, so make yourself a local copy (or bookmark this blog post).

Note Added November 22, Hours Later

Ha! Ha! @KariTheFinn — my partner at Win10.Guru — reminded me that these are the same generic keys that have worked on previous Feature Upgrades to Windows 10. It’s always nice to have access to a copy, but they’re the same one we’ve been using for some time now. That’s a laugh for me, who knew from previous use that the generic key for Windows 10 Pro (ends in 3V66T) looked awfully familiar.
