    Hi I dualbooted windows 10 on my macbook air. After about a couple of weeks im getting a message saying that I have to activate windows 10. Also I can't use the internet for some reason after getting this message. I just downloaded the iso from windows website.

    Any help would be good thanks

    You need a Windows 7 or 8 key to activate it. Failing that you need to pay for Windows 10

    Win7 or win8 key will not work with win10 activation.
    it will only works if you install win7/8 and activate them before you upgrade to win10.

    Since version 1511 you can enter the win7/8 product key and it'll activate.
