    this win 10 pro build 1511 is crazy many things happened to me you cant imagine.

    anyway

    you can use old keys of win7/8/8.1 to update directly on
    win 10 pro build 1511

    change windows 10 product key use win7/8/8.1 then activate
    done

    Wait a day or so, until one of us gets the new DL again from media tool, as the MS site now say's that it's not 1511 -These downloads cannot be used to update Windows 10 PCs to the November update (Version 1511).

    Ran windows 10 from day one insider preview and not one BSOD, the 1511 DL had 10, they might have changed it as to many problems. Now there's a new cumulative update for 1511 also.
    Had same problems with act, so hold on a bit.

    I hope someone can find out what has happened, i never had any (unexpected) HWID activation faillures or bsod's.

    The use of older genuine keys is not the same as a Digital Entitlement gotten by upgrading 7 > 10.

    What windows 7 version did you install and how did you upgrade to 10 pro?

    Is it because of an embedded Core key in the BIOS? My tablet did the same, Nucleus put me onto a site suggesting using PID.txt in the installation media

    On phone, can't link

    Sometimes it does happen. best solution is keep your GenuineTicket.xml file in safe place and if your clean install of windows 10 does not get activated automatically then use it to activate manually.
    Take help from Yen's procedure:
