    Setting up security Key in Windows 10.


    Something went wrong
    We encountered an issue setting up your security key.
    The security key you used is not supported. Make sure you have a Microsoft-compatible security key and try again.

    Bought a brand new Sandisk ULTRA USB3 32gb. Encountered an issue.

    So which keys are so-called "Microsoft-compatible?"


    Should I throw away my Sandisk Ultra?

    :)

  2. windows 10 key

    Thanks but I don't want to do any decrypting. I want to download a Win 10 ISO from Microsoft and install it using my Win 8 key. No other steps required. Is that possible?

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
