My 'new' Win 10 pro Lenovo T510 was not activated since I got it end of December.
I found the product code on the back but when I tried to enter it (as I have done many times for XP and couple for W7) I got the message "The hardware on this PC has changed....." and I did not get any place to enter the code.
After a chat with a very helpful guy at CFA Trading Ltd I tried the "Change Product Code" icon.
Bazinga! Got the black box and could enter my code.
Now I HAD been there before a few days ago but did not proceed because I did not WANT to CHANGE the code! I merely wanted to enter what I thought was the right one.
Was I being overcautious? Silly? Be kind...

Not silly at all. The byzantinisms of software licensing are really crazy from the perspective of a "regular" user, who's usually not particularly interested in the legal aspects and the technicalities of what constitutes or not an "hardware change", and just wants to use the damn thing...
