    Product Key Not Working


    Hello, I recently switched from regular Windows 10 to Tiny10 on my laptop for better performance. It has the Activate Windows watermark which makes sense because its a non genuine version of Windows. However, when I use the command "wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey" to get the product key that came with the laptop, the key it returns doesn't work. Trying to activate it gives me "The product key you entered didn't work. Check the product key and try again, or enter a different one. 0xc004f050" Trying this with another application, OemKey from NeoSmart Technologies

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community. Appreciate your interest in using Windows 10.

    I suggest you to try to activate Windows by phone by following the steps below:

    • Press “Windows key + R” and type “slui 4” and press Enter.
    • Select your Region/Country.
    • Select the Phone Activation option, and hold on for a real person.

    Hope the information is helpful. Feel free to
