  1. Finding Serial Key for ReInstalling Windows 10 Pro (updated from Win 7 Pro originally)


    Hello,


    I have been facing the issue of BSOD with Stop code error stating Bad System Config Info

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us...m-config/8cbaf277-e2d0-4585-8028-22298051182c


    The only option seems to be reinstalling Windows.(I have got backup of files, so clean install is not an issue)


    However, I do not have any recovery Disk or Installation media or Serial Key.

    Windows 7 Pro came originally installed with my HP Probook 4430s

    And consequently, upgraded it to Windows 10 Pro via Windows Update


    So, I'm concerned that what I would do when I re-install the Windows 10 pro via bootable USB created from ISO available on Windows site here(https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO)?

    I have not changed my motherboard or HDD ever. Also, I'm not sure if my original Win 7 Pro license was OEM or not.


    Is there any file where the Serial Key information is stored on my Laptop? I can access the data, so if I know what file to check, I can write it down,

    :)

  2. How to reinstall Windows 10 if my computers used the free upgrade from 7 and 8?

    Will windows 10 still accept the license keys from 7 and 8 now if I reinstall my computer?

    Does Microsoft keep a list of users who upgraded to Win 10 using their 7 and 8 keys so that when users need to reinstall windows 10 the old keys would work?

    Do I need to call in Microsoft to ask them to activate my Windows 10 when I give them my win 7 keys?

    Both computers are laptops. The windows 7 machine had the serial printed on the back, and I needed to enter that when I upgraded to 10. The windows 8 machine had the serial built in inside its boot system so I didn't need to enter the key when I upgraded to 10, but I did manage to write down the keys using a fetcher program.
     
  3. How to find out the serial number of Windows 10 Pro

    How to find out the serial number of Windows 10 Pro if Windows 7 originally was on the laptop, updated to Windows 8, and then to Windows 10?

    I want to reinstall the system from scratch, by formatting the hard drive.

    Laptop Toshiba Satellite L850-B5K

    The serial number of the preinstalled Windows 7 Home Bacis can be sent to the e-mail address.

    Finding Serial Key for ReInstalling Windows 10 Pro (updated from Win 7 Pro originally)

    Should I buy Windows 10 Home or Pro?

    I bought a win 10 pro oem key for £25, changed my motherboard and cpu, and reinstalled windows, and it activated automatically. So I would say why not buy pro?

    From here-
    Buy Windows 10 Professional genuine license keys with Lifetime Validity

    Was near enough instant delivery of key by email, and it activated on my original install, and on a clean install with changed hardware. Can't say fairer than that for £25
