format question

HP Recommended
HP ENVY 15 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I'd like to know if I format my laptop and re install Windows, can I re install it without issue? Will I get the upgrade I got some months ago?

 

Thanks

Hi,

Yes you can install without any problems and you do not need product key as long as you install same edition (home or pro). It will be automatically activated once installed. 

You can download the latest version of Windows 10 directly from Microsoft and create a bootable usb drive. Download tool and run, follow the app and choose to install on different computer. Now create win 10 drive with latest version. If you install earlier version you will still get all updates

Hope it helps,
