I have a Windows 8 Pro key that came on a plastic card with the Windows 8 DVD. I am pretty sure this is an upgrade version, but I don't know for sure because I don't have the original packaging. All I have is the DVD and the plastic card that has the activation code.
I am wondering if there is a short cut to using this key to install Windows 10 Pro?
Do I really have to install Windows 8, install it again (because it's probably an upgrade key), upgrade to 8.1, and then upgrade to 10?
Is there some way I can just install Windows 10 directly?
This will be installed on a new computer on a blank SSD.
