    Windows 8.1

    Well problem solved folks. I realized that I had never ugged the computer into the Ethernet port or gotten WiFi access so I did that and it said my product key was blocked. Frustrated and confused I re installed windows from the installation mefia, this time plugging in the Ethernet cord before I even started the install and it installed and activated perfectly on the ssd. Odd how it said blocked at first but either way, I'm all set now

    Sorry for typos I'm on my phone and in a time crunch
