    Just skip it and don't enter any key. You say you've upgraded and used it for several hours. It will activate.
    Alrighty, should I install just windows or upgrade it?? Really pressured here :S

    I told you not to do anything rash you are now going to loose all your files you should be trying a repair. just skip the product key part it should reactivate later. Pleased we got you to Boot from usb though.
    Its actually alright, I dont mind doing the work again, more practice but do you recommend just downloading the windows 10 or upgrading it? I really dont mind having no files or apps onboard, I can always just redownload them.

    If it offers an upgrade option - yes try it. It should keep old settings and files.
    But still depends if you need anything or not.

ID:	29237It says that if I upgrade all local files and programs in the windows server 2012 R2 dont really know what that means but is this the installation for windows 8.1?
    If I choose to just download windows it says it will erase all programs and files and replace them then install windows 8.1 or windows server 2012 R2. What kind of installation is this? am I supposed to install first of all windows 8.1 then install windows 10? Really confused :x

    I am also afraid that if I upgrade my windows It will just happen all over again, I mean this process, I download windows 10, upgrade it, finally install it, and start to play it (do whatever) then after it will freeze, I hold down the powerbutton and it will repeat like an evil cycle! :S

    I have not been in this situation it's trial and error now mate just continue the upgrade and see what happens.

    At least you can do a fresh install if it don't work.
