  1. revert legal windows from pirated version


    Hello,


    I have received laptop donation. I suppose it pre-installed with win 7 home premium. It has windows OEM sticker in the back.

    However, It runs with un-activated win 10 pro edition. Someone may reinstall it with pirated version.


    How do I revert to Win 10 home premium? No reinstalled if possible.

    If is not possible than to Win 7 version as stated on OEM sticker so I can use it LEGALLY.


    Also is the free update still available if in case I need to revert to win 7 version?

    :)

    Downgrading from a pirated Windows OS

    You've already mangled your existing operating system by upgrading to a pirated version of Windows 10. Use your Windows 8.1 disk to do a new installation of your original Windows 8.1 operating system. If you have saved the product key from your original Windows 8.1 operating system, then use that product key again to install Windows 8.1.

    You can downgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 8, by following the instructions in the answers to this question: How can I downgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 8?. Why not downgrade the pirated Windows 10 to Windows 8 instead and then change the product key and upgrade legally back to Windows 10? There are two reasons for not doing it this way:

    1. Your new Windows 10 can inherit problems from the pirated version of Windows 10.
    2. It's a two-step process to install Windows 8.1 and upgrade to Windows 10 instead of a four-step cumulative history: Windows 8.1 -> pirated Windows 10 -> downgrade pirated Windows 10 to Windows 8.1 -> upgrade to Windows 10. Even though the two-step method doesn't save any time, it still eliminates two unnecessary steps.

    Windows 10 and pirated version of Windows 10

    Hello,

    my name is Tadas, I am a student and I am also giving technical support for people who need it (Windows).

    Based on my recent experience I would like to know what pirated versions of Windows 10 will experience.

    Several customer had experienced some problems with automatic update after it all files are gone from their PC. Is this one of the experiences that pirated Windows 10 versions experience?

    I am looking very seriously into computer piracy and I need to know what pirated versions of Windows 10 experience that I should warn my customers. I am using legal version of Windows 10 so I can't experience what they are (pirates).

    Thank you! I am waiting for responses. revert legal windows from pirated version :)
