    The kickstarter told us that we got activated Windows 10.

    I got:

    "The Product key used on this PC didn't work With this edition of Windows". All I have done is booted up the Device.
    I tried sending email to support, but weeks have gone by and I have heard nothing.

    Please help.

    Moin Moin,
    Try to reinstall the image, maybe something went wrong while installing.
    Live long and prosper!

    I had the identical problem that my system also reported that Windows is not activated. On the board there are some numbers printed on stickers and somebody suggested that they are a Produkt key. They are not a product key.

    I solved the problem as I had an Activation Key for a different system which have not used for it and activated the Windows on the LattePanda with it

    In the beginning after I have received the LattePanda like so many other people I also had the "Just a moment" - Boot loop problem, so I reinstalled Windows using the provided Windows image file.
