    Oh my bad , I may have missed that... does ShowKey show that as the installed key as well?
    No. It shows the BBBBB-BB... one.

    Something's not right.... the -6F4BT is a retail key and should display as such if it is installed via slmgr /ipk

    In a Command Prompt (Admin) {right click start icon to get to it} run the command :

    slmgr /dlv

    Post the results here and we can tell you the status of your current activation.
    Is there anywhere I can go to understand all the results of this command ?

    Like a line by line explanation.

    Also, I run slmgr -dli as instructed here, Windows License Type - Determine if OEM, Retail, or Volume - Windows 10 Forums.

    Mine says RETAIL

    Maybe because I'm using a generic retail key. But I think it should be OEM or VOLUME since I bought the laptop not Windows 10, right?

    6F4BT is the Windows 10 Home SL generic key you get via the Digital Entitlement. It shows Retail because once you do the free upgrade, you call Microsoft if you have issues not the OEM. That's my theory anyway. Mine shows RETAIL channel too, only it says Professional edition and my partial key is 3V66T.

    I backed up a system image of my Windows 10 then clean installed 10 Home SL. I ran ShowKeyPlus and the installed key was the generic key (the 6F4BT one). I dunno how this info could help you diagnose the problem.

    Anyway, restored my system image now cause I don't want to redownload updates and drivers.
