    Windows 10 SL x64

    Windows 10's activation.


    Can't fit it in topic title to I just elaborate here.

    I have one brand new OS-less HP Pavilion laptop.

    I installed, just now, Windows 10 from flashdisk. Pro version, and I didn't enter any key. Of course it's unactivated still.

    Thing is, my OLP license won't come until the next seven days, but I want to use it legally. Can I input my, still sealed, Windows 10's FPP key now and replace it with OLP key later? If I can, would it free up the FPP key once I input the OLP key?

    Thanks in advance.

    Why bother, the only restriction is you cannot personalise install for a few days. Other than that it is fully functional, including updates.

    Uh, well, as long as it doesn't nag me then I think I could bear with it. I'm going to do a formal presentation with it, so kind of.... embarassing if it pops up and complains.

    It will not popup with a nag screen except under rare circumstances. If it happens, just laugh and make a joke saying you have no idea how to sort this issue, as it just started yesterday!

    The answer to both those questions is yes.
