    BTW: the key that fakemoustache mentioned for Windows 10 is the exact same key that millions of people have gotten when they upgraded. It's useless. Windows 10 will activate either when a purchased retail key is entered - or when it finds your hardware ID previously activated from an upgrade on the Microsoft activation servers.
    You're right, I figured that out now
    No need to enter a key, just re-activate. Maybe use slmgr /ato if needed.

    Oh man! That is seriously sad. Well, will see if I can use tricks from this forum - like installing Win 7 again and upgrade to Win 10 or using other HDD
    Do you know what your Win 7 key is?

    If you do you could try phoning MS activation, see if you can give them your 7 key and get a 10 one from them

    Not sure if it will work, but could be worth a try, would be quicker than re installing 7 then upgrading
