  • Hello,

    I'd ask in the Windows 10 forum on Microsoft Community.

    Don't include product keys or PII though.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'

  • You can do this now on the latest ISO released by Microsoft.

    Also when you upgrade to Windows 10 a new key is generated, you must get this new key out of the system and document it before you must reload.

    Previvously you had to install windows 8 run windows updates, then upgrade to windows 10. But you can now using the most recent ISO image just install fresh and use the W8 key. You still get a new W10 key.

    Also if you have issues just call Windows Activation Support and they will help you right there.
