    Hi!

    If your key was ok before that upgrade attempt, then it should still be ok now.

    There are tools, which can read out and show you your product key. Showkey is one of them:
    Showkey - Windows 10 Forums

    Another tool I know of is called Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder.

    I think with these tools you should be able to read out the product key.

    Anyway, didn't Windows 7 still come with a printed label with the key on it attached to the PC?

    Call Microsoft to activated your "legal" Windows 7 again.

    sounds like the guy you bought the computer had installed a pirated copy of win7 ,way I see it your only option is to buy a legit copy of windows ,be it 7 or 8, or even 10 ,,but I think its the only option you got , good luck.
    its been documented that with win10 Microsoft is going to do its best to kill pirate software on a upgraded computer,

    re-install your Windows 7 OS (restore a backup , you DID do a full OS backup didn't you?) and then re-do the Windows 10 upgrade.

    Use showkey and write down the Windows 7 key.

    It's the only way to make it work again according to MS Support.
