    You can try the automatic online activation again by opening an elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt and entering:

    slmgr /ato

    Also, try slmgr /dlv and post those results as well.

    You have Windows 10 Home installed. That's your problem. You originally upgraded from Windows 7 Pro.

    Go to Settings - Update and Security - Activation - Change Product Key.

    Enter the Windows 7 Pro generic product key:

    Then, if you have to, try slmgr /ato again.
