  1. Need to get an OEM copy of Win 10


    Hello



    I upgraded a friends win 7 computer with a new SS HD and discovered I can no longer upgrade to WIn 10 with the Win 7 password. So I am stuck with buying a WIn 10 license. Where is the best place to get a Win 10 OEM license? I hate to charge my friend retail for one.

    my windows 10 oem didn't come with a product key

    Dude, go to Newegg right now and read the questions and answers tab on Windows 10 OEM. The OEM copies that are listed there DO in fact, come on an optical disc. The flash drive ONLY comes on Retail copies.

  3. Upgrade a Win 10 home OEM to Win 10 Pro OEM with Win 10 Pro OEM Key?

    I recently purchased a laptop that has an OEM version of Win 10 Home on it.

    I verified this by using : slmgr -dli.

    Previously I had purchased an OEM Win 10 Pro Key.

    Can I use this OEM Win 10 Pro Key to upgrade the OEM Win 10 Home to the OEM Win 10 Pro.

    If so what are the steps to accomplish this?

    In addition, I assume that is this is possible, that the current product key will be updated to the new product key?

    The reason I am asking this is that it's my understanding that these product keys are tied to the bios on a name brand laptop.

    TIA

    Windows 10 serial on OEM


    So I'll summarize steps made...

    1. Saved serial number (taken with Belarc Advisory) from preinstalled (half chinese language) Windows 8.1 (don't know exactly the version, suspect Windows 8.1 with bing) on tablet
    2. Formatted tablet
    3. Tried to make a clean Windows 10 (HOME, HOME N and also PRO, everytime with the same result) install with ISO taken with MediaCreationTool, during install (and also after completing installation) it says that the saved serial is not valid
    4. Tried to reinstall Windows 8.1 (ISO taken with MediaCreationTool again) HOME, it says that the serial is not valid

    So i suspect that the saved serial, is from a WINDOWS 8.1 WITH BING OEM version and this kind of ISO is not accessible/downloadable anywhere (at least I can't find it, any suggestion?)

    Still not tried SHOWKEY with that serial, I am in office now, and the serial is saved on a usb pen at home, will try this evening.

    So I'm stucked but if everything is like I suspect, it's incredible. If I have a tablet/notebook/netbook with Windows 8 preinstalled, it seems that I can update to Windows 10 without problems, but if I want to make a clean Windows 10 install that serial is not valid...
