    Windows 10 Activation


    Hi there,


    Re-opening an old thread since I need to work on an older laptop amidst this Covid-19 lockdown.


    I had a genuine Windows 7 Home Prem OA OEM version, came pre-installed from Dell running on my home PC and then sometime in 2016, it started prompting me to upgrade to Windows 10. There was a shortcut installed on my desktop which had steps to carry out this upgrade. Everything went smooth and I was able to upgrade to Windows 10.


    However, sometime in 2017/18, I started getting this watermark on bottom right side of desktop saying that I need to activate my Windows. On going to Settings page, there is a link at the bottom which says, "Windows isn't activated. Activate Windows now."


    On clicking this link, it says activation failed. See the screenshot below:


    Windows 10 Activation 866a683f-b078-4028-8c69-b41bed34abb4?upload=true.jpg


    I had a perfectly running Windows 7 and now I'm stuck with this activation problem. Not sure how/why it got upgraded to Win-10 pro version since I had a Win7 Home edition.


    I contacted the MS support team, but they were not of much help; they verified that Win7 key is genuine and that the upgrade should have been smooth to Win10 Home ed. The slui 4 command didn't work either.

    How do I now go to WIn-10 home edition? I have the Win-7 product key which is pasted at the back of the laptop.


    Appreciate some help here which can sort out this issue.

    Thanks.


    Cheers!!

    P

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?

    this search might help you https://www.google.com.au/webhp?sou...o+to+get+it+activated+windows+10+blocked+keys

    From http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/why-activate-windows-10

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      Windows 10 Activation [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
