After you upgrade to Windows 10, you can reinstall or do a clean installation on the same device. You won’t need a product key to reactivate Windows 10 on the same hardware. For more info on how to create your own Windows 10 installation media, see theMicrosoft software download website.

Go to buy windows 10 product key >>
Can I go back to my old operating system?

There are several ways for you to go back from Windows 10 to a previous version of Windows:
  • You’ll be able to go back to an earlier version by going to Settings>Update & security>Recovery.The time you have to go back depends on what version of Windows 10 your PC is running after the upgrade. For example, if your PC is running Windows 10 Version 1511, you have a month to go back to your previous operating system. If your PC is running Windows 10 Version 1607, you have 10 days to go back. (To see what version of Windows 10 your PC is running after you upgrade, select the Start button, then select Settings>System>About.)
  • If your PC manufacturer provided the option, you might be able to restore your device to factory settings.
  • If options to go back and restore factory settings aren’t available, you can use installation media and a product key to install an earlier version of Windows.
  • For more info and requirements, see the Go back to your previous version of Windows section of Recovery options in Windows 10.
  • Note:If the manufacturer set up your PC to run from a compressed Windows image file (also known as Windows image file boot or WIMBoot) and included the option to restore factory settings, that option will no longer be available after you upgrade to Windows 10.
