    Got it!
    Was ask 3 times to enter the Product Key. It must stay blank (skip). Did Customize Settings twice.
    Was activated instantly before running Windows Update with the last 3 digits changed.

    Hardware Hash Before and After:
    Product ID: 00330-80000-00000-AA000/10240 Upgrade from 10166 Pro clean install
    Product ID: 00330-80000-00000-AA529/10240 Pro Clean Install


    Activation is a complex process. It implies the information written by the manufacturer in the BIOS, your MAC address, the first hardware hash and probably things that Microsoft will never tell. These parameters are in the Microsoft Data Base and activation occurs through them.

    All the best,
