    The anniversary upgrade has not been released yet, you will need to restore your original copy and keep checking the windows update over the next few days until it's released

    If you have lost activation you need to contact Microsoft and explain exactly what you did, where you obtained your licence and copy of the anniversary update before it's release, but expect a long wait as they will be very busy
