Windows Win 10 upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hey guys.

 

I was trying to upgrade my Win 7 Pro 64 bit to Win 10 Pro (in huge delay,  yes.), but for some reason I got error message about my Windows is not Geniue..

Install of win 10 stopped at the very end of it, and now I'm stuck with Win 7 Pro 64bit but not geniue and need to enter a valid CD key.

 

problem is my windows were geniue before.. and the install deleted whole restore points I've made before it.

 

Any help ?

You now require a key microsoft ended free windows 10. Sadly up until a few months ago you could still get the accessibility version free however even that is now ended :(

There are still "workarounds" for obtaining a few upgrade to Win10. That's no matter though, since there's an issue with a product key that worked before.

One question:
Where did you purchase your license, and about how much did you pay for it? (Full price, half price, a "too good to be true" discount, or was it included with the machine?)

I'd try activating Windows over the phone, I've had keys that would refuse online activation but work once I called in:
1. Disconnect your machine from the internet
2. Open the run (Win+R) dialog, and type in "slui 4", click Yes on any UAC prompts, and follow the steps provided by the activation wizard.
3. Type in activation ID provided over the phone, and boom. All good to go.

Note; If you don't get a phone number and an "installation ID", or an error comes up, you may need to "reinstall" the product key while offline.

  • Start command prompt as an admin
  • Type slmgr /upk
  • then slmgr /cpky
  • followed by slmgr /rearm
  • Reboot, stay offline
  • Type product key in when prompted.
  • Repeat Step 2 (slui)
