    I only have a Macbook Air with an M1 processor on which I have a virtual machine with Windows 10 for ARM processors already installed. Since the new version came out, the system prompted me to upgrade to Windows 11.

    I tried all morning with a legit Win11 licence to no success. I eventually on a win tried an old Win 10 licence I had from way back in 2015. Worked fine. So weird!

    I also stumbled into another issue when logging into my Microsoft account; that it would ask for my password and then imidiatley after ask for a current system password, which always failed whenever i was using the one i know. I figured out i need to go to settings and 'add' a new password inside of 'Sign in Options' > 'Passwords'. Mentioning this incase anyone else is stuck there.

    What a huge waste of a morning scrathing my head.

    I have had it that Activation failed, but was complete on reboot! Go figure.
