Yes. it is activated. i just checked.
I upgraded this PC from 8.1 to 10 a week ago. I should have used showKeyPlus before upgrading this PC
I notified the developer of ShowKeyPlus to see if he may have any ideas what could be causing this.
He says that it's because it is a MAK activated installation - those get removed from the registry for security reasons.
Understanding MAK Activation
I'm afraid not with a MAK key since it's not there to be read.
MAK is so OP. Now I cannot get back my retail key to reinstall my Window LOL
What does the activation screen show? Does it show a digital entitlement?
after i retrieve the key, and in the future i have to upgrade my motherboard and processor, can i use this key to activate my windows 10. thanks
If it's a retail Windows 10 key, then yes.
If this is for a free upgrade to Windows 10 instead, then you could link the digital license to your Microsoft account and use the Activation Troubleshooter to activate Windows 10 on the new motherboard.

Ms still has kept the internal labelling of this product as Windows 9. !!!
Ms must have made a last minute change !!!.
Here's an extract from BELARC audit of the system I'm currently playing with.
How to Change Product Key in Windows 10
Activation helps verify that your copy of Windows is genuine and hasnít been used on more devices than the Microsoft Software License Terms allow.
Sometimes you may need to change the product key in...
I want to clean install Windows 10 on my HTPC and remain an insider. Will it ask for a product key? Can I use my 8.1 product key? I found an ISO that I am going to try so that I don't have to install 8.1 and 1,000 updates.
I need a product or activation key for Windows 10 Enterprise insider preview build 10162.
I downloaded the iso-Windows10_InsiderPreview_x32_IT IT_10074 but when I try to enter the product key is written to me: I could not test the product key, and checks the destination media.
