Windows is not activated after system restore

I have X51 R2 which I brought in 2014 and it comes with Win8. 

I restored the system with Dell OS Recovery and Restore USB key, and tryin to upgrade to Win10, but it shows "Error code: 0xC004C003" The activation server determined the specified product key has been blocked.

Should I send the machine back to Dell or I need to buy new Windows?

RE: Windows is not activated after system restore

Its probably a Windows 10 issue.  Microsoft has some help information you can find here that may work.
