You are getting this message because the product key that you have is only meant for clean install. However since you have already paid for it and the key is with you, you can try the following solution

  1. Right click on the bottom left corner of the screen and click on command prompt.
  2. Type regedit.
  3. In the registry editor browse for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Setup/OOBE/
  4. You will see “MediaBootInstall”
  5. Double click on it to change the value to 0
  6. Exit the registry editor
  7. Now open command prompt again and type "slmgr /rearm" and press enter

Now reboot your computer and you should be able to activate your Windows.
