    Thanks Brink.
    ShowKeyPlus shows a difference in the 'Installed Key' and the 'OEM Key'
    The 'OEM Edition' is 'Win 10 RTM Professional OEM: DM' which is what I expect and is the OS version installed.

    So, I can just go ahead and change the Product Key the system is currently activated with, to the 'OEM Key' by using that second link you gave me?

    Once that's done, will it use that corrected product key to reactivate itself when I do any future clean installs?

    That's correct. You should be able to just change the product key to activate with the OEM key.

    When you do a clean install, it should use the OEM key embedded in the UEFI firmware chip by default.

    Done and dusted! Changed the product key to the OEM Key shown by ShowKeyPlus and the activation page now shows 'Windows is activated with a digital licence'.
    Thanks Brink and thanks ShowKeyPlus.
