    windows 10 1511 update need help!!


    trying to upgrade my windows 10 via windows update,it has failed many times now iam thinking of using the other ways to upgrade soIf I was to use media creation tool or iso clean install method would I need my activation key? This is because my computer came with windows 8.1 pre-installed. If I do need my activation key, is there a way for me to get it?
