    How and where did you get a Product Key to Activate Enterprise? I ask because Enterprise is normally activated via Volume Licensing, and those keys are only available to Corporate Customers.

    All enterprise PC's are not activated by ms they are activated via a Kms server and need activating every month so licences are not exceeded. It's highly likely you have a pirated windows

    Enterprise copies are activated in 1 of 2 ways

    1). Through the use of a MAK. (multi-activation key). You get x# of activations per key as an organization and each time you activate a copy of Windows 10 enterprise, it increments that count.

    2). You activate against a KMS server (key management server). Your box would reach out and activate itself against KMS and than at specific intervals would check back in.

    Typically a consumer/home user or enthusiast wouldn't be running a copy of Enterprise edition.

    Some Enterprise installs are in fact activated by Microsoft. Most aren't but there are a few exceptions. My "My Visual Studio Enterprise Subscription" MAK keys activate via Microsoft and get a Digital License.

    Buyer beware, IMHO. Corporations are not allowed to resell Enterprise subscriptions, period. And keys acquired through MSDN and or My Visual Studio subscriptions are also Not For Resale. As far as I know Microsoft is the only one authorised to sell Windows Enterprise licences.

    It's more than likely a MAK key with a limited number of activations, and you do have to use one each time you re-install Windows.
