    I installed Win10 on an HP Stream and it keeps telling me to activate


    Hi, I installed Windows 10 on an almost new HP Stream and I get an "Activate Windows" notification every time the PC starts.
    When I go to active it, it tells me my Product Key isn't valid.
    Help!

    It may not activate until 29th. I'm not 100% sure on that though.

    Hey Mark, Welcome to tenforums.com!

    Did you become an Insider and sign in with an MS Account?

    I think so, I've been an Insider since February, and I have to sign in (at the Lock Screen) with my Outlook acct.

    I've installed Win10 on several other computers with no problems, just the HP Stream.

    Same here, have done 4 devices all perfect except HP Steam 7.
    The first upgrade - no activation couldn't connect it said so I rest back to win8.1
    Second upgrade - activated, however then clean install says product key blocked.

    Maybe this is what's wrong,
    Clean install was with the RTM OEM retail ISO but stream uses Windows with Bing.
    I guess Win with Bing users should wait till upgrade is pushed by MS

    See here to revert to Win8.1 Bing especially if you have no recovery options
