  1. Upgraded, not activated, which product should I buy?


    Hi People and thanks for taking the time to read and help,


    My problem is ...


    I currently live in China and I bought a Dell G7, obviously the OS was in Chinese. I couldn't change the language to English as i needed to update to pro. I didn't check to see if the product key was entered.


    Once I upgraded I found that I couldn't register as there was no associated product key, as I bought this in China and then purchased an upgrade I find myself in a little bit of a pickle.


    I am tempted to just buy the pro version outright, but I wanted to know if I could buy the home version for the product key and then that will be superseded by the upgrade digital licence.


    Any help would be awesome, Thank yo again for reading and any help and advice you may have.

    :)

    Windows 10 will not activate Error code 0x803F7001


    Possibly there can be the problem with Microsoft activation Server, so your Windows 10 is not activated. In this scenario, you need to wait and verify if it is the issue from Microsoft’s side. But if you are getting error code 0x803f7001, you can also try these steps:

    1. Open Settings app. Then go to Update and security > Activation screen > Change product.
    2. Type your Windows edition product key and click Next.
    3. You’ll get We couldn’t activate Windows error message.
    4. Retry steps 1-3 then type your 25-characters unique product key.
    5. Wait for the process to complete, Windows 10 is activated.
    Hope something helps this problem

    • Click Start
    • Settings
    • Find Update & Security
    • On the left pane of the page, click Activation
    • In the change the product key section, enter the product key you have
    • Click Next to activate.
