thru phone they won't ask u for your licence key. they'll ask for installation ID. when u choose activate thru phone the ID will be generated on screen.
Via phone have to write down yourself.. all the digits in sets.

I got my free key during the early period when windows 10 was free for everyone. Now after changing hardware it became inactivated and the same key doesn't work anymore. Is it an OEM key?

Your windows is oem or retail ? The windows 10 key follows the original licence.

Which hardware did you change.

Did you registered Windows 10 using your Microsoft account.

i got the key from MS at the time they were giving out free keys to windows insiders just when the pre-release win10 launched

they sent key through email

so i think is oem

used for 1 or 2 years then
changed the whole computer

i linked to ms account but it still says i cannot restore old license

Just get a Win 10 Pro key from ebay for $2. Save all the hassle.
