    Windows 10

    Activation for laptops !!


    Hi,

    I do have a laptop with Windows 10 was installed on and activated. I did format the laptop but didn't make any backup.

    If I use Windows 10 installation media created by another computer and install Windows 10 back on the laptop, will it be automatically activated ?

    Any idea!

    Make sure you install the same version as you had before, Home or Pro. The install media contains both, but the digital licence Microsoft has recorded for your PC is only for the version you originally had installed. If asked for a key, click 'I don't have one', it should activate automatically once it can connect to the activation servers.

    That's a relief, Thank you
