  1. After upgrade Windows from 8.1. to 10, my key will work with Home&Pro?


    Hi, I need your help!
    I bought Windows 8.1 Full Version in the past and then I upgraded to Windows 10 with that upgrade from some years ago, I wasn't satisfied with it so I reinstalled Windows 8.1.
    One month ago I had some problems with my Windows, so someone helped me to reinstall it, because I didn't have time. This guy told me that he installed Windows 10 and my PC doesn't need another key because it's somehow stored on my motherboard. Now i have so many problems with my windows, it freeze sometimes when I play games and when I try to restart the PC, Windows doesn't load and show that message with "Preparing automatic repair" or it started after many restarts. In conclusion I want to reinstall windows, because when I tried to make a backup file it shows that windows it installed not only on SSD but also on HDD (I don't know how), so I want to delete everything to solve this problems and reinstall only on SSD, so here appears another problem: now, after that guy installed Windows 10 Home (I had Windows 8.1. Full Verios in the past), I wanna know if the key will be taken automatically by Windows if I'll install Windows 10 Pro, concidering that in the past i upgraded from 8.1. Full Version to 10, or because that guy installed Windows 10 Home now i can't install Windows 10 Pro.
    Thank you so much for your time, please help me and sorry for my english, I'm not a native speaker.

    :)

  2. windows 10 key

    I read through most of that thread and it seems you have to jump through windows insider hoops. Is there a Retail Windows 10 x64 PRO ISO I can download directly from microsoft that my windows 8 key will work with?

    After upgrade Windows from 8.1. to 10, my key will work with Home&Pro?

    Will Windows 8.0 pro upgrade key work?


    The answer to that question is yes it will activate Windows 10 Pro. What it won't do, though, is trigger an upgrade from Windows 10 Home to Pro.

    1. Install Windows 10 Pro - not activated. Enter Windows 8/8.1 Pro upgrade product key. It will activate.
    2. Install Windows 10 Home. Change product key. Here a Windows 8/8.1 Pro upgrade key (and any Windows 7/8/8.1 Pro product key) will be rejected. Instead enter the Windows 10 Pro generic product key and the upgrade to Pro will be triggered. Now you have a non-activated Windows 10 Pro installed. Change product key again, enter the Windows 8/8.1 Pro upgrade product key and it will activate.

    Now - this is all assuming that the Windows 8/8.1 Pro upgrade product key has not been blocked from automatic activation. What I don't know is if phone activation will work in that case - or if the user must actually install Windows 8/8.1 Pro and activate it via phone first. My Windows 7 product key (good for 3 license family pack) has been blocked from automatic activation and I have to call the recorded phone line every time.
