So you shouldn't need to do this but in my case for some reason I needed to activate windows after performing and upgrade from Windows 8.1.

In my case I tried activating Windows by clicking on Activate Online and that didn't work for me. I managed to activate Windows 10 by entering the product key for enterprise.

Windows 10 Pro Key: NKJFK-GPHP7-G8C3J-P6JXR-HQRJR

Windows 10 Enterprise Key: PBHCJ-Q2NYD-2PX34-T2TD6-233PK

You can download bat files that set the key from my GitHub gists using the links below

You should be able to find these on the preview site as well. Hopefully this is useful for someone else as well Smile
