Activate Windows 10???

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'll make this quick. So basically my neighbor did a Linus to his laptop and now the hard disk is dead. I think that it was previously installed with windows 8 pro

 

QUESTION: if I replaced it and install windows 10 or 8 on it, can it grab the license key from somewhere in the hardware? or I have to buy a new license key?

the licence key should be linked with the laptop. So when you connect with wifi it should automatically activate windows. I know this is what happens with oem laptops running windows 10 but not too sure about windows 8

In my experience, it will just grab the license and otherwise you just need to enter the 8 license, if there is a sticker present.
