    Hi guys,
    I checked some related posts on MDL(such as the sticky one explaining activation process, sorry but I'm not able to put links in my post)but still can't sort out what exactly do I need to do.

    I used KMS tools to activate Windows 8.1 Pro on my physical disk, and back when Windows 10 is still in beta I installed the preview version (which is a pro version) in a VMWare virtual machine and has been upgrading it since and everything works fine. Now I'd like to do a fresh install of Windows 10 on my physical disk because my Windows 8.1 is somehow messed up. So is there any way to activate this freshly installed Windows 10 with the activation info from my windows 10 in the vm? Thanks!

    Install Build 10565, then use your Win 8.1 Key to activate

    I don't think that's possible, to transfer the vm activation to another install.

    The only thing you had to do was just upgrade your kms activated 8.1 pro install to 10 pro and the upgrade will be genuine thru HWID. To avoid Upgrading read this: http://forums.mydigitallife.net/thr...ut-going-through-the-complete-upgrade-process

    @xinso, how can gatherosstate get a genuineticket.xml when kms activated 8.1 cannot be validated by windows validation (needed to get a genuine genuineticket.xml)?

    OSMinorVersion=1;

    Well, I will try to get Windows 8.1 Pro ticket again, and feedback.
