So my university offers students software upgrades for free, and one of them was the Windows 10 Education deal, and since it included Excel, I decided to get it. I had Win 10 before, and being a dummy I did not back it up. I entered in the product key and got Excel, but I got a watermark saying "Activate Windows Go to Setting to activate Windows" on the lower right. This drove me nuts so I tried to get rid of it, and even reset my Laptop.
When I tried to activate my Windows, it said my edition was Win 10 Enterprise, and that it could not be activated because "We can't reach a critical Windows service, Make sure you're connected to internet. Wait a few minutes, and try activating again. Error code:0x80070426"
I thought that by resetting I would be able to get my Win 10 back, but clearly I was wrong. Is there no way to activate my Windows 10 Enterprise or get my original Win 10 back?
