win 10 installation gone wrong

Hello Experts,
This is the situation
I had this win 7 ultimate activated GENUINE.
I download and install the WIN 10
after installing
in Control Panel\System and Security\System
windiw actvation: Product Id : not available.

So this is strange to me then I went to activation window but it simply does not load... .it stays for ever trying to load the window...
Now every few minutes it blocks the screen and ask for validation...

Is it ok if I format install win 7 and reload again ?
What options do I have here ?
Regards,
Comment

If Windows 10 is running - I think it is - better to first try a Windows 10 Repair Install and then see if it will activate.

Go to the Media Creation Link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Windows 10 is running, so click on the Download button (not Upgrade Button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.

If that does not work or still will not activate then try a fresh install of Windows 7 and try again. Make sure Windows 7 is activated.
