So a couple of days ago my old windows 10 OS got viruses or something and crashed. I rebooted the pc from a windows 10 dvd. I didnt get a key when i first got windows 10 because I had windows 7 and got W10 during the free period.
Now my new Window 10 needs to be activated, and my keycode from windows 7 does not work. I have my old OS in the Windows.old folder, is there any way i can copy a certain file from that to my new Windows folder to get it activated? Feels unnecessary to buy it again :/
