    my product key is unreadable, how kan i make a windows fresh install_


    this device came originaly with windows 8 i upgraded as soon as i could to 10. now the sticker under this device is a unreadable. i dont either have a disc.

    my plan was to download iso image make a bootable usb, and make a fresh installation. butt ill guess ill need the prouct key somewhere in this process.

    where can i obtain my product key?

    Windows 10 Pro Blue Screen

    I installed Windows 10 Pro using the "Media Creation Tool" on an existing Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center. After several days of trouble free Windows 10 Pro operation I started getting a "Blue Screen" with the following error message "KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT
    HANDLED (cng.sys)".

    Is there anything I can do other than a repair or fresh install to correct it?

    My experience is to fresh install Windows 10 Pro to get rid of "Blue Screen" errors.

    Can I make a fresh install of Windows 10 Pro without having to go back through the thread of installs I made to get to this point (i.e. Windows 8.1 to Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center to Windows 10 Pro)?

    The Original Equipment Manufacturer makes it difficult to obtain the original Windows 8.1 Product Key that came with the computer but I have the Windows 10 Pro with Media Center upgrade Product Key, I am worried that the upgrade Product Key will not be enough
    to make a fresh install.

    Please recommend the best path forward. Thanks.

    Go ahead and do clean install with same type of W10 you have now. As long as W10 was activated on that computer, you don't need to enter product key, just skip when asked.

    You don't need a key any more, if you already had Windows 10 activated on you PC.

    What a crazy place for that sticker - it's whole purpose to provide holographic authentication - getting scratched just nullifies that.

    ... but yes Win 8 keys are not printed on a sticker but are read from the firmware on install. A blue sticker gives you Win 10 Pro.
    Magenta gives either Home or Single Language.
