    Win 10 Pro upgrade using Win 8 Pro product key

    I just bought a new computer running Win 10 Home. When I went to upgrade to Win 10 Pro using my Win 8 Pro product key from my old computer, the upgrade wouldn't activate.

    Now I'm stuck with a bunch of error messages (mainly 0xC004C003) and am being told windows isn't activated. I can't seem to get my activated Win 10 Home back.

    I don't have a product key for the Win 10 Home because it came pre-installed. There's no product code recorded on the packaging or labelling on the device.

    So:

    How do I either

    • activate the Win Pro upgrade, or
    • Get my activated Win 10 home back?

  3. new fresh install of Win 11 Pro - but will not activate with my Win 10 Pro Product Key

    Win 10 Pro to Win 11 Pro. Activation: not. Troubleshooter: no help whatever. Gives generic error 0x803fa067. No help on MS web site (used to be a phone call for Activation issues, but no more). Used that W10-Pro Product Key (retail CD purchase) since 2017, activated no problems ever, even after fresh re-installs and hardware changes.

    Repair does naught but waste an hour and No Activation fix.

    There is no solution, other than that the MS web site (see above) is incorrect: one cannot do a fresh install of Win 11 and expect activation using a legit Win 10 Product Key. Please change the info on the web site!

    Activation of Windows 10 Pro doesn´t work

    Hallo, i can´t activate my windows 10 Pro (free upgrade from windows 7);

    Info: 0xC0EA000A

    Manual activation doesn´t work either.

    Important (i think): I had to re-install windows 10 (3 or even 4 times). because I had massive problems with "Start and Cortana Issues".

    I hope, I don´t have to search the old product key.

    PS. Yes, Windows 7 was genuine.
