    What is Correct License Key when I Used Free UIpgrade from 8.0 to 10?


    Some time ago I took advantage of the free upgrade from Win 8 to Win 10. Now I am replacing my Hard Drives and will need to re-install Win 10. What is the correct key I should use for this install? Is it my old Win 8 key?

    There will be a smaller link "I don't have a product key". Click on that.

    You do not need a key as your licence is tied to your mobo id which was registered with MS when you upgraded. Just skip key entry.
