Hi,

If Windows 10 was installed once on the PC it will be automatically activated if the same edition is reinstalled. Since you are having problems activating I would get in contact with Microsoft support by chat. Here is link to virtual agent. Type in activation and follow the answers. After a couple of answers you will have the option to talk to real person and they will help you with activation.

Hope it helps,

David
