    Is there a way to find out which key was used for activation?

    I have done testing with insider programs. I also tested this with my windows 7 oem install, I rolled the oem back to windows 7. I also used a windows 7 retail version to also upgrade to windows 10. This way I can keep my multiple boot setup. I just want to be legit that is all.

    :)

    Actually, this is not possible. We cannot determine your account without the email address. You can make a new Microsoft Account for your father. That's all you can do right now!

    Thank you. I was already aware of that. That was not my issue. It has been resolved. It looks like Microsoft may have reset all 7 & 8.x keys (except windows 7 oemslp keys) I was able to use my windows 7 retail key on windows 10. This key was blocked because I had activated to much (I over tested). I was ready to call Microsoft. I was trying windows 7 retail on virtual machine, it didn't work to well and because of my goofs it caused the windows 7 retail key to be blocked. I was just waiting on the new windows 10 update.

    What I did, is right click properties of "Thispc" clicked change key and I followed the prompts. It took the windows 7 retail key without issue & also activated without issue. Now when I do a clean, I won't have to worry about the key. Now, I can keep my multiple boot setup legally.

    Just for reference windows 10 32 bit is installed on the hard drive.
