Windows is unactivated in either case. I don't bother with activation and either *ahoy there* or just leave it in trial mode which is fully functional but some options are disabled such as personalisation and there's a watermark on the desktop. I'd suggest backing up your key and anything else you can before you attempt this.
There are Win7 Pro keys that will activate Win10 Pro fine on the Linx on eBay for around £8. Technically you are still violating the terms of MS's licencing by using cheap keys which are pled off dead machines but it does give working activation

Sorry for being dim here, but what do you mean by "in either case"? As clearly Windows is
activated with the stock factory image and even upgraded to Win 10? I'm guessing the code won't activate the iWork one as it's the wrong version? Would it not be possible just to install the Windows version that matches the key from an ISO of that version instead of the iWork version?
Also, I didn't think the *ahoy there* option was possible with Win 10. Is there any chance you could PM me a reliable educational site to learn more about this interesting development?
I think I might wait for your tool though - I feel I've misunderstood enough despite having dipped into the thread since it started that I probably do need my hand held
