    Microsoft didn't predict that some people like to keep these things up to date....

    I can only make an assumption that the bios upgrade made the hardware # on the activation server think it was a new system.
    It's a rather stupid system tbh.

    Why do I get the feeling that you have not contacted activation support by phone yet?

    Just tell them what you've done, as you have done nothing wrong. I hope that their advice is not to re-install your old OS (7 SP1 or 8.1) and perform the Win 10 upgrade again. I presume that it's possible to activate 10 like the older OSes, with an activation code (not a license key) they'll provide.
