hi

3 years ago i bought my ROG G751JT , it came with windows 8 OS , then i upgraded it to w10 like every1 else .


it worked fine for 2 years , then i decided to go back to Windows 7 , i did but i didnt like it so i wanna go back again to windows 10

now , should i install windows 8 then upgrade to windows 10 like i did in the first time ? or i should install windows 10 directly ?

its bcoz of my serial number , i think its embded in the BIOS , so if i installed windows 10 ,, will it get activated ? or i should go w8 then upgrade to 10 ??


any help is appreciated


thank u

Windows 10 should recognize your hardware fingerprint so it will now reinstall directly.

Key is encrypted in secure boot so you never need to type in a key anymore if you installed Windows 10 before on that system.
