I didn't have a product key that would work. In the end I didn't need one. I guess there was one stashed in my UEFI after all, it's just the tool i used to check for it didn't pick it up for some reason (though it was in the registry of my old install)

Like an elephant, I didn't check the back of my PC for the product key - the fact that there was one of those product key labels on the disc envelope which was defaced had me fixated on that, rather than it occurring to me that they could have put it somewhere else. Anyway, it didn't matter because I had that product key from the registry of my old install.

It didn't work on any of those isos i could download from microsoft.

It *does* work if i choose "i don't have a product key" - then it activates. Also didn't occur to me to try that, since i had a product key.

I still think it's weird that the product key won't work. It *is* the product key for this machine.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
