    That's interesting. You are activated with a Win8 OEM Core key (according to your Extended PID anyway)

    I assume this only applies to OEM keys. I just activated 10586 with a Win7 Retail key and it shows the Win10 retail PID.
    No trace of my Win 7 key.

    And the product key -3667T appears to be coming from Windows 8, not Windows 10:
    Blocked Product Key for Windows 8 Pro - Microsoft Community

    That's why the OP can't upgrade from this Home to Pro - the license appears to be invalid. How would you suggest the OP proceed, @Superfly?

    Well, the thing is, it shows as licenced anyway - that's what's confusing me (and the upgrade assistant, I suspect)
    The basic info points to a Win8 activation (albeit it obviously is Win10)

    I think the OP needs to get digital entitlement via a GT.xml in order to get the upgrade - or purchase a Pro key.

    how do I get that digital entitlement?, also keep in mind that I had been able to upgrade from windows 8.1 home to pro on an identical laptop to this one and this one was also giving a very similar error when trying to upgrade on windows 8.1.

    edit: I can also roll back to the factory image on the laptop and we can try to tackle this one windows 8.1 if you think it will work better

    You can get the ticket from your current install ( if it's properly activated... it reads the OEM key and HardwareID) then clean install Win10 Home with it following the instructions.

    PS: If that ticket does not work, then you will need to install Win 8.1 Core first to get one.

    I figured what the problem is... the licencing files support Win8.0 OEM keys and thus activates with that - strangely enough no Win 8.0 retail or any type of Win 8.1 keys are included.

    To bypass Win 10 using the OEM key on clean install, you have to include a pid.txt file in the sources folder of the install media.

    To do this save the following in notepad as pid.txt:
    [PID]
    Value=TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99

    PS: Its way past my bed-time - so gonna leave you in the capable hands of the installation experts. Good luck.
