Windows 10: Product Key Roadblock

    Product Key Roadblock


    I've run the media creation tool and waited the hours it took to download, only to find that it's asking me for a product key. Why didn't they ask me for this before wasting everyone's bandwidth?

    Is there anything that can be done? I've successfully installed this on my other systems, but those computers have had the offer icon for weeks now. This computer never got the offer for some reason. Am I stuck with Windows 7 then?

    Where are you being asked for a installation key? Is it while running the MediaCreationTool or when you try to do the upgrade to Win 10?

    Did you/are you creating a ISO or flash drive?

    What OS is on this computer?
    Is it activated and legal?

This is just a question out of curiosity. Did anyone get asked to type in the product key? I saved it to a text file but I don't remember being asked for it when I installed Windows 10.
