You are correct.Unlikely since the unactivated windows issue occurred after the bios was set correctly on first boot after flash, so it never saw windows boot until after the settings were set correctly like that.
Today I loaded my Windows 11 install image for the first time since updating to the recent beta bios.
It tripped up activation complaining about changed hardware, although no new hardware was introduced.
All Secure Boot and fTPM settings were set correctly before booting. This is also using a Local Account only.
So it affects more than just MS accounts. Hopefully MSI/MS will figure this out. Having to reactivate Windows
11 every time the motherboard bios is flashed going forward will be a real pain in the you know what.
