    I'm having the same problem... can't activate... says try later...

    It was a genuine Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 10 Home, with a microsoft account (not insider), that already did the windows reservation.
    I did the update with that microsoft tool, not by windows update.

    Its a microsoft servers problem or should i try to use some generic key to activate ?

    i guess the wise thing to do its stick with windows 8.1 until everything its sorted out, from bugs and to massive updates and installations that keep saturating microsoft servers....

    performance wise its almost the same...

    same problem here, upgraded by GWX a genuine W7 Sp1 Home Pro, HP notebook...
    all goes fine but system doesn't activate [windows can't activate, try again later), error code C004F034 (something wrong with license)...

    now restoring W7, then retry upgrade

    (sorry, i did not see this topic, so i posted before this problem in 10240 thread)

    I have the same activation problem. but the odd thing is before I upgraded to w10 from 8.1 licenced, I got my bios key. After I upgraded to w10, the key that will be activated is not the same with the key that I got with a program. Is this normal ?

    After win 10 upgrade, genuine key is replaced with a generic key. :(
