    Once the oem key is entered and digital entitlement or digital license is granted the original key whether MAK retail or oem ceases to exist in registry and only a generic key is extrapolated by my pid key readers

    Each key has a unique pid... post a screenshot so that I can see what's going on.

    Wow!... talk about co-incidence - you have the same issue as the guy I just replied to another thread

    You can't use a key from an OEM PC on your self-build - it's illegal (and as we explained before it's tied to the hardware that came with that key after it's activated) - where did you get that key from?

    You have a key that was probably ripped from the bios of a Win 10 PC.

    OEM DM keys are not sold, only comes from the factory built-in to the firmware or separately from an OEM service centre. Either way it must come with an OEM PC.

    PS: To answer the second question - you need an OEM:NONSLP key (make sure it's sealed) - however I wouldn't trust that guy anyway.
