I have been using Macrium to clone Windows 10 pro 64bit for about 5 months and probably a couple hundred times. My process has been the same. I install windows, Office 365 and some standard business applications and update windows completely.
I create an Image of this setup and use it to make clones on laptops with the exact same hardware.
After I restore the image to a the exact hardware I rename the machine and restart it. without any issues.
I was the sole technician in my organization to perform and manage this task until I left for vacation.
Another technician assumed my role for a couple days and cloned approximately 20 Laptops rapidly. in the same day. Ever since this day I am unable to activate windows 10. I have tried creating a new image, I have tried sysprep before cloning, I have tried going through activation with Microsoft on these machines and that doesn't work at all.
The only thing that seems to work is installing windows fresh every single time which is too time consuming and means that I wont be using Macrium.
What am I doing wrong here?
