    By the sound of your comments, hopefully he won't.

    OEM:NONSLP (NSLP ... Non System Locked Pre-installation):
    Similar to retail product key, but distributed and supported by an OEM.
    Non-SLP product key is also not brand specific.
    End-users are required to perform activation by phone or activate online.

    Dusty100 might have to phone MS and explain the Win10 upgrade difficulties. I recall something similar about activation issues back on SevenForums. Having a MGdiag would be handy

    Why can't you help him here? Just because a couple of us don't agree with you are you going to pick up your toys and leave the sandbox? If we are wrong, then you have a chance to show us our error and we can all learn.

    Exactly, just solve the problem. That's all that matters.

    You do realize that helping him here would be helpful for others that have the same or similar issues here in the 10 forums. I have no idea why he should go to the 7 forums for you to help him out.

    The MGdiag isn't important to me - just might be handy for Peter to have when he calls MS

    The OEM_COA_NSLP (Non System Locked Pre-installation) license is unique in that it's like an OEM_SLP and it's like a Retail license.

    I really think MS will have to address this - and they're really good when people call in with legitimate issues. They ask a few questions, then give you the answer in a few minutes.

    This is old, but it might still be true.

    If you install Windows 10 onto a clean, reformatted hard drive you will not need a key, ever, period. To activate you will. If you have a Windows 7 LEGITIMATE key, and it does not work, and you have installed the correct version of Windows 10 according to your Windows 7 version, then CALL MICROSOFT, and they will make it work. I had to do that with a friend's computer. Her key was legitimate, and should have worked. Microsoft made it work. It took a bit, and I had to speak with a person, but they made it work.
