    I can't activate my Windows after change to Windows 10 S mode.


    My brother give me a old PC Compaq Mini CQ10-500SA, and it came with Windows 7 Starter.

    Because windows 7 didn't have support anymore, I download the "MediaCreationTool1909.exe" and did the upgrade from Windows 7 Starter to Windows 10, and it was fine activated and everything, but for a Atom N455 processor it was not really good, so I thought, if it was a Windows 7 "STARTER", should have a "Starter" version of Windows 10...

    Then I started looking in the internet and read about the Windows 10 S mode, so I did some rechearch and I found a tool to change from my actual Windows 10 to a Windows 10 S mode...

    I have download the tool "Windows10SInstaller5932.exe" on this link https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=853240.


    So, I have used this tool, and first it says that I didn´t have RAM enough, so I did buy 2GB RAM and upgraded it, then I did run it again and after a really long time of the installation I got the Windows 10 S, but after a while I realised that it was not activated, so I tried to activate it, and it give me an error 0x0803F7001


    Running the throubleshot it's says that's the key on PC is for a Windows 10 Home not for a Windows 10 S...


    And I don't think it's fair, The Windows 10 S, should not be a version of Windows 7 Starter for a PC with "weak" or old processos?


    Is anything that I can do?

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    this search might help you https://www.google.com.au/webhp?sou...o+to+get+it+activated+windows+10+blocked+keys

    From http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/why-activate-windows-10

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      I can't activate my Windows after change to Windows 10 S mode. [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?
