    Anybody upgraded OEM (laptop/PC) to Windows 10?

    I've just upgraded one of my laptops from factory installed OEM 7 Professional to Windows 10 Professional, for whatever reason its being reported as retail, the bit that confuses me is in control panel / system, underneath Windows Edition it says

    Windows 10 Pro

    The Next is a blue link that links me to change my product key? I don't have this on any of my systems that have been upgraded from retail versions of 7/8/8.1, is it an OEM thing? Any chance you can check your systems if you've upgraded from OEM to windows 10.

    Thank you in advance.

    Nevermind it's gone after I've done some updates. Odd.

    I've upgraded my ASUS G74SX-3DE from Win7 Home Premium OEM to Win 10 and it still shows the Change Product Key all the way on the bottom right next to Product ID... Some people change their keys and then it can upgrade the edition on the system.
