Hi folks, I was having a problem getting my Windows 11 to activate. I have a Raspberry Pi running PI-Hole and serving as my DHCP server on my network. I manually changed my DNS addresses to Google, 8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4, and tried activating again. Once this was successful, I cleared the DNS addresses and reverted to my PI-Hole.

Hope this helps others

Hi tuiguang7,

I was just commenting that my network wide Ad-blocker (a Raspberry PI running Pi-Hole software) was interfering with Windows 11 communicating with Microsoft's activation server and if anyone else out there is also using a similar Ad-blocker, they should disable it and allow Windows unfettered access. Temporarily disabling the Ad-blocker in my case solved the problem and I am now activated.

Thanks for responding and
Have a great day!
