  1. I've installed windows 10, but can't activate it.


    I've installed windows 10, but for whatever reason, it keeps saying that I need to go and activate it in the settings. When I try to do this, I try putting in the product key, but it says its no good. I copied and pasted right from the email. Whenever I restart my computer the message goes away, but comes back in about an hour or so telling me to activate it again.

  2. Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.

    I've installed windows 10, but can't activate it.

    Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    How long did you wait for activation?
    When I re-installed with a fresh install... it took a few hours to sync and activate.
    However, it did, finally, activate.
