Windows 7: Windows 7 Home Premium OEM product Key Invalid

17 Mar 2020   #1

Windows 10 64bit
Windows 7 Home Premium OEM product Key Invalid

I had Windows 7 home premium. But my HDD crashed. So I bought new HDD, installed Windows 10 and now it is showing me errors with invalid key. I have my product key on laptop and it is with COA. I tried slmgr /upk and /ipk with various combinatorics of my product ID, but they still do not work. Can you please give me any cues what should I can do?

Windows 7 Pro SP1 64 bit

To help others who know a lot more about this than I do, did you upgrade using the free upgrade route or did you purchase a retail version of Win 10? One reason I'm asking is because it doesn't know what type of license it is.

Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-bit

You didn't describe(brand name, model name, model number, serial number) your laptop.
You said it came with Windows 7 Home Premium, so I'm going to assume it's the same Windows 7 version that's on its Certificate-Of-Authenticity sticker.

You said you replaced that laptop's hard drive.
You said you installed Windows 10 in it.
Your log shows you installed Windows 10 Pro in it.

Before I comment any further, is everything I've said so far correct?

How did you install Windows 10?
Did you clean/fresh install with format or did you Upgrade install from within windows? The latter should auto activate.
