HP PCs - Windows 10 Product Activation

This document is for HP PCs and tablets with Windows 10.
To help prevent software piracy, Microsoft requires Windows 10 to be activated before it can be used. All HP computers and tablets that come with Windows 10 installed activate automatically once connected to the Internet to make it easier for you to set up your computer. However, if you decide to install a different version of Windows 10 (such as an upgrade to the Enterprise version) or a store-bought copy of Windows 10, you need to activate Windows as part of the installation process. There might also be situations when Windows prompts you to activate the product, even though the product has already been activated.
You can also upgrade the machine just by entering the newly acquired activation key in the System properties. The system then automatically detects the different version of the operating system, and installs and downloads the new features and updates accordingly.
Click the headings below for more information about Windows 10 activation, steps to activate Windows 10, and steps for troubleshooting when Windows 10 activation is not successful.
