So, I had to reinstall windows 7. How do I re-upgrade to windows 10. I've read that it is possible. I tried to upgrade via windows but need key to continue. I've read you dont need to key for upgrade since i'm already in record. Tried upgrade via bootup, the dvd i have require fresh install or upgrade via windows. I'm just confused with info i'd found.

Has anyone tried?

Hi did you look at the article here https://www.howtogeek.com/265417/win...over-what-now/ you need to scroll down thw page a bit.

Eliminate all other factors, and the one which remains must be the truth.

I had to re activate Windows 10 after a Motherboard change. I finished up having to use the Windows 7 key in Windows 10. Initial installation was Windows 7 OEM, upgraded to Windows 10.
