    Is it possible to upgrade to Win10 with Windows 8.1 Pro using currently KMSpico?
    Will Win10 say it's not activated Windows, or is there anything to do about it?

    so there are ways to get activated win10 by upgrading from win7 or win8? i'm sure it won't hold but atleast for the time being.

    For your interest, I had a Windows 8.1 Pro authenticated with AutoKMS, and upgraded using the Win 10 RTM (WZOR) off a usbkey and the MS posted KMS client setup key and it did authenticate Win10. :g:

    Yup it works, I upgraded KMSPico 8.1 pro with windows 10 pro iso (Full wipe upgrade) and it was activated. No keys or anything needed.

    so you're saying that as long as I make bootable usb with w10 iso it should work with KMS on win8.1? what happens if I make an upgrade only, decide later to then "reset" the OS for a fresh install? or is usb method better? i can't figure out how it works since i guess you guys did a full format to install w10 leaving no trace of KMS at all? and no key needed?
    i have right now KMSpico v9.1.3 and not autoKMS that one of you mentioned.

    No, nobody is saying that. Read properly.
    You have to do an upgrade (double click setup.exe) from within Windows 8.1, not a clean install from a bootable USB.

    Once you have upgraded to Windows 10 and it has successfully activated, you can then wipe and use your bootable USB for a clean install
