  1. Producy Key is replaced on upgrade and not honored


    Hi. My son purchased windows 8.1 at a store. He upgraded to windows 10. After a motherboard replacement he was told that he needs to activate windows. He tried with his windows 10 product key and was told that he needs his 8.1 key (long gone / lost). Why won't Microsoft honor the upgrade key they gave him which still seems to be there.

    :)

    Producy Key is replaced on upgrade and not honored

    It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas (& Upgrade!)

    Dear Santa,

    I want to upgrade my primary PC this year, my MB/CPU is almost 5 years old now, and I've got the upgrade itch.

    It's going to be built around an unlocked Ivy Bridge CPU, namely the 3770k

    But first, I've got a few questions for you:

    • What chipsets support that CPU? I think the X79 and X77?
    • Is the 3770k going to be replaced with a better model, better stepping, etc in 2012 or early 2013?
    Oh and is the world going to end in Dec 2012?

    Thx,
    Little Johnny
