    Perhaps you may need to perform a clean install?

    According to the support, this is not the normal behavior. They are sure that the key should work on the system without a clean install. I'm suspecting this too but it seems equally strange that two different Microsoft support technicians made the same error... I'll give this problem another few days and I will try reinstalling.

    I created a restore point before issuing those commands.
    I tried with a clean install and I'm still getting the same error on different machines. The key must be for a different edition or I'm one of the unluckiest persons installing Windows. It's strange that the technician didn't catch it. Just to be sure I will download and test the different versions of Windows enterprise the key could be for. The most probable suspect is the LTSB. I will keep you updated.

    Thank you, I didn't know that program. Windows 10 Enterprise RTM, by the way.

    Like I suspected, it's a LTSB key. Thank you for your answers.
