    As long as it says activated with a digital entitlement you are good to go. From now on you can install the same edition of Windows 10 on the same computer and it will activate without entering a product key.

    Good job getting legal!

    Sorry if I do not quote each post that I'm answering - let meknow if I'm missing any..

    Single Language is an edition which has it's own keys ( i.e. the language restriction is irrelevant as, irrespective of which, the edition remains the same, thus has no effect on the key set)

    The BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB is a placeholder Windows inserts after activating a MAK key.
    The reason being, these keys can have thousands of activations (for which companies pay huge amounts) and should someone steal one, they could sell that same key to thousands and each will activate as if part of a company network - it's thus a security feature specific to MAK's.

    You are welcome

    BTW: ...although you have genuine (digital entitlement) activation with your OEM key, you may want to remove the dodgy install key - in case MS checks these rogue keys - to do this run from command prompt as admin:

    slmgr /ipk BT79Q-G7N6G-PGBYW-4YWX6-6F4BT

    That is the generic Windows 10 Single Language key - it won't affect your activation but will give you a fully legit installation.

    The partial product Key is 6F4BT, which is the last five characters of the generic Key.

    Oh my bad , I may have missed that... does ShowKey show that as the installed key as well?
