    Before we start, let me say: I did not use a Windows 8.1 key, I just upgraded Windows 8.1 with the Media creation tool.

    Now I cannot activate Windows 10. It says Error code 0xC004F034, your licence is not valid. I did NOT use a 8.1 licence, I just upgraded. What to do now? The link support gives me has a solution, but I cannot perform it because I don't have the same options as they say (Click on Windows key > Settings > Updates and security > Activation > Go to store, I dont have the Go to store option there).

    You are trying to activate a W10 installation with a W8.1 license key. That sort of thing has never worked.

    You can find more details about this here:

    If something isn't clear please continue the discussion there.

    Thank you.
