  1. Windows 10 Product Key


    When I bought a Dell desktop it had Windows 8.1. I upgraded to Windows 10. Computer crashes. The rescue USB says I need the Windows 10 Product Key to reinstall Windows 10. Dell and Best Buy (where I bought it) don't have it on record. Where can I find it?

    :)

  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?

  3. 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.

    Windows 10 Product Key

    Hi Oscar,

    Since the laptop has no battery compartment wherein the product key is usually located, we recommend that you follow these steps to find your Windows product key:

    • Press Windows + X and select Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Enter this command: wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey
      and hit Enter.

    Also, if you're looking to reinstall Windows 10 after a hardware replacement, we recommend that you follow the steps provided in this

    article
    .

    Let us know if performing these steps resolved the issue.
