No -- the product serial number has nothing to do with the Windows version.

 

But if you change the OS, you will lose the Windows activation as that is tied to the OS that comes preloaded on the laptop and does not transfer to another OS version.

The serial number of the laptop is hard coded into the BIOS firmware -- and you have no way of changing that, nor does Windows.

 

I suspect you are looking at something else.
