    Did you have Windows 10 Pro 64 bit before? Or was it Home? The keys are not compatible if you switch between*home and pro.

    If this is a store bought computer HP, Dell then you probably had a OEM license (these are usually embedded in the motherboard). If you downloaded a Windows ISO to install these are retail and won't work with your key. You need to request install media from the computer manufacturer to re-install with.

    hello mytere
    i remembered.. i used a media creation tool to install the winndows 10 pro version..and my previous 64 bit also had the pro version.
    it had told me that you dont need to re activate it since i ws only downgrading it to 32 bit

    Neemobeer's post, btw, is completely erroneous for Windows 8 and 10, and mostly erroneous for Windows 7, so don't let his comments worry you.
