    try the phone activation method. that usually works as a last resort. clearly explain your situation and an MS rep should give you a new key to reactivate the edition of win10 you were using.

    Phone activation is your best shot but if too much has changed they might deem it to be a new PC and require you to purchase a new license.

    Always had good luck with phone, and some Bios let you clear out secure boot settings and somehow that fixes license activation for me a couple times. Ed Bott claims any old Windows license can be used if Windows 10 ask for one. I actually did this for a desktop PC that had no OS. I just used a Windows 7 retail key that was actually not being used and it activated Win 10 perfectly.
