    Did you do an upgrade first, or just a clean install before doing an upgrade?

    Yes, you did make a mistake. You have to do an upgrade first, get that activated, and only then will Microsoft activate a clean install on that same computer.

    You have to install your previous version of Windows (Windows 7 or 8/8.1) and upgrade that in place to Windows 10. After the upgrade activates, then and only then will Microsoft activate a clean install on that same computer.

    Yes, that is what you have to do. Upgrade first and then you can do what you want.

    1. Install Windows 8.1 from the CD.
    2. Ensure that Windows 8.1 is activated.
    3. Upgrade that Windows 8.1 while it is installed to Windows 10.
    4. Ensure that the Windows 10 upgrade is activated.
    5. If desired, do clean install of Windows 10 and skip entering a key anytime that it asks for it.
    6. The Windows 10 clean install should now activate itself.
