    Please let me know, is that Key work for above purpose.

    Thanks
    You can use ShowKeyPlus to grab your key, if you haven't done that already.

    But do run sfc /scannow as Superfly recommends.

    That's all hunky-dory but I want to know if you have a key in the firmware and what edition it is... Run ShowKey and click on the keys to mask them - then post the photo.

    According to post #14 image you have Windows 7 Professional SP1
    EDIT: I'm missing something: which process are you using to update to Windows 10?
    --- There have been excellent recommendations and I wouldn't prefer to use the disc unless we more about it.

    I am using this Procedure "MediaCreationTool1803", it will create Windows 10 on USB then I am installing from USB, as other members helping me in this Thread.

    Thanks

    I'm finding this thread both fascinating and confusing in equal measures.

    You would like to have Windows 10 Pro.

    You are running Windows 7 Pro, which says it's licensed, appears genuine, came from a Lenovo factory reset image....

    ...but something prevents it being used as the staging post for an upgrade to 10.

    And now out of the blue we see in ShowKeyPlus an OEM key/edition for 'Win 8.1 RTM Professional OEM:DM'

    If that's embedded in the machine's firmware surely a clean install of 10 would just pick it up and use it to qualify for a digital license for 10? What's the need to fix a broken 7 then? There must be a complicated back-story as to how this machine got into this state, but it's beyond me to unravel it.

    That's all for now - back to watching this fascinating tale unfold....
