So a long time ago i created a bootable windows 10 usb and forgot where i got it from but it came with no activation. I just installed windows 10 from that usb a couple weeks ago but it is not activated. Everything works fine but i want to be able to update windows and everything and have windows activated. So i bought a windows 10 key from a user here on mpgh thinking i could just plug in the key and i would be able to activate windows and update everything.
But when i put the key into the change windows key, The key works, however i get this error after confirming its a working key:
So then i tried to activate windows through a windows 10 activator from torrent websites, i have tried several activators and none of them seem to work for some reason. I think the activators aren't working due to something on my end though. One activator worked but after i restarted my pc, Windows said it was not activated anymore.
So is there any way around this?
Did i buy this key for nothing?
If i manage to find a working activator, do you think the key would work?
I think the windows 10 key you purchase is invalid, so I'm guessing you got scammed?
