    Not ! once activated it uses an generic key. The activation is hardware related :tea: (HWID)

    Because The OEM Key (BIOS) is for Windows 8.1 and the current Key is Generic Key for Windows 10 Home Single Language.

    Windows 8.1 Key cannot be used in Windows 10.:D

    After upgrading did you check whether it is activated ? If yes then it will again get activated once you go online after clean install.:cool:

    There was no mistake, both CMD and PS work with what you posted when copy an pasted. You were right.
