The (0xC004F050) error code usually means the edition of an OEM key does not match the edition of Windows that is already installed on the PC.
- Check which Windows 11 edition you have installed
In the Windows Search Bar type in “Activation Settings”, hit enter to open the Activation window.
Your installed edition is shown at the top of the window (highlighted in red below).
If the installed edition does not match the edition of an OEM key, this is what is causing the (0xC004F050) error code.
