    My PC was running Windows 7 Ultimate and I wanted to upgrade to Windows 10.
    Unfortunately, my PC was in a perpetual "Reboot to finish installing updates" state, so I was unable to perform the upgrade.
    I did some research and determined that my Windows 7 Ultimate key (which I legitimately purchased) should allow me to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro. So because I could not upgrade due to the 'updates reboot' issue, I decided to do a clean install. I formatted a USB stick and created Windows 10 Pro installation media using the MS Media Creation Tool. During the install it prompted me for a license key. I entered my Win 7 Ultimate license key, but it was rejected. I now have Windows 10 installed, but it's not activated. What should I do now?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Was the build that you installed the July RTM build (10240) or the November update (10586)?
