    A reset, put copy of Windows 10 on system but with nothing else, no saved settings or installed software like you bought a Win 10 disc and installed it.

    My copy activated itself this morning, so looks like it just takes awhile.

    Jamie, what error did you get before? There are two issues here, one with the server not responding, or the other where the product key is blocked.

    Yes, you could reset Windows 10 to default if you like.

    If you still have hard drive activity, then it would be best to let it sit until finished. Sometimes it can take quite a while.

    I've seen at least one report which claims that the Blocked key issue was related to a lack of temporary file space, or an existing file that it couldn't overwrite in temp files. Running a disk cleanup and clearing temp files solved it. Not sure if that's the case for everyone.
