    try this command line app from page 7 here
    after upgrade windows 10 cannot activate Error code: 0xC004F034
    after entering it should either come back as activated, if so you are good to go, or an error, if so try at another time

    is it possible you could do a screenshot, just to double check its the same problem

    from what I have seen on this

    sounds like it is using the generic key from the preview versions which I have seen reports of them now being blocked, from the screenshot I think it might be best to contact Microsoft to issue you with another key

    Just wait a little bit (or maybe check for some updates and reboot your system). I had the same issue yesterday and after installing updates and rebooting the pc it suddenly was activated. You dont need another key just a be patient
