Ok guys! I think the solution is about following two steps.

Step 01 Change the Windows to the provided in this post as new product keys since build 10158.

Step 02 Use Prompt or win+r Slui.exe 4, so performs the phone activation. (only works by phone).

Hope it helps! ;)

I updated my SurfacePro3 to 10162 via iso. Started giving me "Windows activation error". I just changed the product key to the one mentioned above that related to me "PRO" version and it activated just fine. Go to settings>system>about and click on "change product key or upgrade your edition of windows" and enter key from there.

If this doesn't work than MS engineers are saying they are working on a fix where it should activate automatically
