Solved!

Is it possible to install windows 10 software that came installed on my laptop to my pc?

I bought a laptop two years ago in the US and it has windows 10.  My desktop pc used to have 10 but I renewed it to factory settings which carries windows 7.  As windows 10 is no longer a free download is it legal/allowed for me to install the windows 10 from my laptop to my pc?  If it is how do I go about it?

Hi

Dunno.

KeyFinderInstaller may help....

Doing research, and none of the methods are mine, I have some, simple single lines of code that will list the same value for your Windows 10 Product Key…
Two for Windows 10 and one for Linux.

W10 Using cmd.exe as an Administrator (copy and paste accordingly).

wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey >> c:\ProdKey.txt

Creates a text file called ProdKey.txt on your C:\ area.

Next is a PowerShell command, as Administrator...
(Get-WmiObject -query ‘select * from SoftwareLicensingService’).OA3xOriginalProductKey

but it will run within W10 using cmd.exe as an Administrator.
powershell (Get-WmiObject -query ‘select * from SoftwareLicensingService’).OA3xOriginalProductKey

Last, but not least....
Linux@Lubuntu:~$ sudo cat /sys/firmware/acpi/tables/MSDM | strings | tail -n 1

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO

 

So if you have a W10 licence key, then I suggest you try.
