    Windows 10 PRO (upgrade from TP)

    Windows does not activate after clean install

    Yesterday, I did a clean install of build 10162, and during the install, I was prompted to insert my key. I clicked skip, and now if I go to "Activation", it says "Windows is not activated". I tried this and it did not work. What should I do ?

    PS: I didn't receive the update for build 10240 through windows update.

    We've removed ISOs and keys. At this point there isn't a supported clean install path. Just upgrades from here until 7/29.
