I bought a Dell Inspiron 5559 with pre-installed wiondows 10 home edition. After finish windows setup, an error messaje came up ¨Activation of windows 10 home failed because "the product key used in this pc did not work with this edition of windows'". I contact dell support and they suggested me to re-install win10 which i did but the problem is still there. Any clue Please.
Thanks in advance..
Activation key is embedded in the computer and you do not have access to it. Did you mistakenly enter a key? That is not necessary. The Activation will automatically scan the computer and read your embedded key. When reinstalling win 10 you skip the first question about a product key by choosing I don't have a key. Then activate after the reinstallation is finished.
Please stroll down to 'Activating after reinstalling windows 10' and expand it in the link below. Click on Get Help With Windows 10 Activation Errors and then Using The Activation Troubleshooter. Hopefully it will be a help to you.
Did you attempt to clean install using a Digital Download from Dell or from Microsoft?
