    So it's an OEM key - is that the problem? Still seems weird to me that I would have the same issue with 3 different keys...

    Correct - people rip keys from OEM PC's and sell them to unsuspecting buyers and hope the backdoor phone activation will bail them out.

    The error you have:
    "The Software Licensing Server reported that the hardware ID binding is beyond level of tolerance."

    Means that key have been used on too many different hardware installations.

    So do not buy keys on ebay - money-back guarantee or not - the guy that key was stolen from will have the same issue as you.

    You can try the upgrade or clean install with the MSDN key again - just provide the error codes that you get n either Win 7 or 10 - I'm sure we can still get you digital entitlement.

    Ok so it took 2 days to reject the MSDN key this time. Note that this is a recent install of win10 from scratch (not upgraded), but ive already used one of the dodgy ebay keys on it which was rejected.

    Seems your base activation that acquired digital entilement is corrupted...

    Go to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\ClipSVC

    There is a file named tokens.dat - take ownership of that and delete it - windows will rebuild it and attempt to activate with the original digital entlement from MS when online again.
