    If you click on the product code, all but the last 5 will be X'd out. You may want to pull the image and post a new one with the codes X'd out. It looks like that PC actually has an OEM embedded key?

    EDIT: Looks like you fixed it while I was typing my post.

    Well this is a surprise. Booted another of the 4. Still no activation with digital entitlement though.

    Yes it does look like this one has the key. Why doesn't it activate with digital entitlement?

    attachment now shows as invalid.

    EDIT: I don't know what's going on? It showed and invalid message when I clicked on it, but now it's showing in my quoted message?

    IDK, I tried editing when I realized I'd exposed the key, but got both pics, so I deleted and started over with a copy/paste. Hopefully it's sorted now.

    If I read that correctly, that PC has a Windows 8.1 Pro OEM embedded key. Clean install Windows 10 and it should read and use it automatically. The download listed as "Windows 10" in the tool downloaded from here, https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/3...dows-10-a.html will install Home or Pro, depending on the key found in the BIOS. It will use Windows 8/8.1 OEM embedded keys with no need to do the upgrade first.

    With showkey open, just click on the listed product code and it will X out most of it for you. Then take your screen shoot.

    I likely quoted that post "while" you were editing it.

    The 3V66T key is the correct generic Pro key you get via the free upgrade. Go to Settings > Update & Security > Activation > Product key, and see what it says?
