    What happens when you try to use the Media Creation Tool to upgrade? Any chance of a screenshot of the error?

    What happens when you launch it?

    If you got Windows 10 when it was free then there is a unique hardware identifier in the cloud that is attached your system where you using a local account or had a microsoft account added to the system?

    Either way it should auto activate when windows 10 is installed.

    lastly which version of Windows 8 do you have?

    You can find out by pressing windows key + r to open up "run", then type winver.
