    Canīt activate after replace original HD by SSD

    Dear colleagues,
    after replacing the original HD with Win 8 64 Single Language OEM (activated), of my Asus netbook, by a SSD with Win 8.1 64 Single Language, I am often prompted to activate it. When I try to use the OEM key to do the activation, windows tell me the key is not proper for the version Iīm currently using. I want to upgrade to Win 10.
    Will it recognize the OEM key ?
    Thanks for your time !

    Correct me if I am wrong but I believe the windows key you have is Y9NXP-XT8MV-PT9TG-97CT3-9D6TC

    This key is used for building standardised Windows Deployment images for WDS as you can install Windows to a machine using these keys and sysprep and capture an image and put your actual OEM key in when you roll during the installation of the Windows images.
    You need the key from the sticker on the PC case to move forward.

    Yes Lottiemansion, he used the generic key to install - then tried to change the key to the one ending -GFYX3, which was not accepted.
    - Windows 8 does not have a key on the case.

    @nagual - please run ShowKey, so that we can ascertain the edition of your key.

    Please Note:
    Click the keys before posting a screen shot or copying the text file
    (i.e. it should look like this XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-GFYX3)
    We mainly need to see the edition that displays below the key.

    Post a screenshot of ShowKeyPlus (clicking on the keys will mask them)

    We need to see the edition that displays below the key. The key itself is secondary.
