The problem is dealt with and is no longer a problem. Thanks for your input Terry. ^^

on 12/22/2015, rbowman supposed :

I did that when I DL'd W10 onto a USB stick, then to a DVD. The W7 number is all I had t the time, and it wouldn't work so a call to MS resulted in a # that DID work, and now no more activation bug. ^^

Actually, the latest W10 builds do allow direct entry of a W7 key. This is a change from the older W10 builds.

I'm getting a MS call soon so no need at this point. Thanks anyway... ^^

Now that you mention that, I think you are correct.
If so, I guess Eagle would need to download that W10 build via a good computer with Internet access and then install it on his problem computer.

I think the most recent update of Windows 10 accepts your Win7 or Win8 key to activate it.

I am not a winders fan either, but I deal with it. Since I used the W7 key when I loaded W10, wouldn't that key be in the winders folder and automatically activate W10?

Eagle was thinking very hard :

I made contact with a feller at MS and now My W10 pro 64 bit is activated. YAAAAAY! :D

Great. You originally also wrote, "...but the built-in modem will not load". Did you get that part figured out?

TomR brought next idea :

Yes, I don't have a modem. That comment was from the old W-3.1 days. ^^
