Can I use Windows 7 product key for Windows

Postby blin » Wed Jun 22, 2016 11:46 am

Quoted from MS article:

During the free upgrade, you can use a valid Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 product key to activate Windows 10 (Version 1511 or higher). The following types of product keys are supported:

•Product keys included in the packaging or the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to your PC that came installed with Windows.

•Product keys included in the confirmation email you received after buying Windows from an online retailer.

•Product keys included in the box the Windows DVD came in.

•Product keys you bought using Windows Anytime Upgrade or Get Genuine Windows.

•If you bought a Windows 8.1 Pro Pack product key, you can use it to activate Windows 10 Pro.


Some Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1product keys can't be used to activate Windows 10, such as product keys for volume licensing, including Generic Volume Licensing Keys (GVLK) and Multiple Activation Keys (MAK), and Windows 7 Enterprise, Windows 8 Enterprise, and Windows 8.1 Enterprise.
