    Just to add:
    1. W10-1803's gatherosstate.exe somehow does not work for me. I used 1703's exe and it works. (Daz loader + win7)
    2. Activated 1903 new install fine.

    i did install windows 7 home premium to my PC and activated using windows loader. i upgraded to windows 10 build 10240 and tried to activate but it shows me this error.

    The activation server determined the specified key is blocked
    Windows can’t activate right now. Try again later
    We couldn’t activate Windows
    Windows Activation failed

    do we have any work around for this? i am thinking if activating windows 7 using kms then upgrading to windows 10 build 10240 will work.
