    The product Key that it shows is "BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB"
    Hello superfatball,

    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.

    I'm afraid not with a MAK key since it's not there to be read.

    What does the activation screen show? Does it show a digital entitlement?

    Hello bayusteve,

    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.
