I have a noob window 11 upgrade Question

Go to solution Solved by Origami Cactus,

Yes, it will work.

Win8-win10-win11 keys are all actually interchangeable.(at least when upgrading)

I'm currently still on win10. I got a prompt months before that I could already upgrade to win11. Since I finally found the time, I want to do a clean install of win11 and not just upgrade to current win10. This might be a dumb question or at the very least a noob one. But my question is, can I just do the clean install and then once the authentication prompt, I'll just type my win10 dc key and it would just activate? Or do I have to upgrade, like to convert the dc key into a win11, before I actually can use it to activate a fresh installed win11? thanks

add windows 7 and 'upgrade vista to 7' keys to that list.

 

i havent tested with 11 yet, because it is a steaming pile of shyte, but for win10 all of the above work.

Also if your key is associated with you Microsoft account it'll just recognize your hardware and auto register when you sign in.  

I'm better at fixing people than PC's... For now.
