  1. OEM Ofiice 2019 & clean reinstall of Win 10


    I'm about to get a Dell laptop with (some version of) Win 10 Pro and Office 2019 installed. I suspect I will do a clean reinstall of Windows to remove bloatware and am not sure how to handle Office 2019. I'm not worried about the installation - I recently installed Office 2019 on another computer so I have the installation stuff for that - but the licensing is different so I suspect the activation process is different.

    What step do I need to go through so I will still have the OEM license after the reinstall?

    It's been 6 years since I last got an OEM version of Office (Office 2013 back then). I'm not sure I ever did a clean reinstall of Windows on that PC and even if I did, the process may have changed.

    I have no idea what version of Windows will be on the laptop, but it's supposedly a new build from Dell so I assume it will be either 2004 or 20H2.

    :)

    Office 2019

    Only supported on Win10. Sorry, 8.1 users, only 4 years old, gotta go.

    Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10

    Spoiler Office 2019
    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

    • Office 2019 will ship in H2 of 2018. Previews of the new apps and servers will start shipping in the second quarter of 2018.
    • Office 2019 apps will be supported on:
      • Any supported Windows 10 SAC release
      • Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2018
      • The next LTSC release of Windows Server
    • The Office 2019 client apps will be released with Click-to-Run installation technology only. We will not provide MSI as a deployment methodology for Office 2019 clients. We will continue to provide MSI for Office Server products.

  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...
