  • That "genuine holo disk" is a fake.  Look at the video referenced below.  The message about the product key being used on another computer is how the key got flagged by Microsoft in the first place.  It is in use on a LOT of computers.

    Your Product ID line shows that you are using an MSDN product key.  Unless you are the subscriber who was issued this product key, it is invalid for your use.

    Windows Product ID: 00426-068-0954926-86284

    The 068 is the MSDN indicator.  Your entire box and its contents is a counterfeit product.  Many counterfeit copies are being sold on eBay and the Amazon Marketplace as well as various websites around the world.  The product key is not a genuine retail PK.  It is a genuine MSDN product key and so will activate and pass as genuine until it is blocked by Microsoft as an MSDN key in use by a nonsubscriber.  It takes a while for MS to detect and complete processing of abused keys.  The seller plans to be doing something else by then.

    Pursue a refund for an item not as described immediately.  Do not accept a replacement product key from the seller.  It will be from the same source.

    Buy a copy of Windows from a rock solid seller like the Microsoft Store or Amazon Corp (not an affiliate).
