Hi,

Just bought at windows 10 installation but would like to instantly install windows 11.. instead of first install windows 10 then upgrading.

So is it possible to activate a clean installation of windows 11 with a new bought windows 10 code?

Thanks for help!

    Hi there,

    Yes, it is possible, just download the Windows 11 ISO and then enter your Key and install it on the PC. You can also try to skip entering the key and then install Windows 11 and then activate it from the settings.

    Activation > Change product key Enter your Key here

    Yes, Windows 10 key should work with clean install for Windows 11. Additionally, you can activate Windows 11 after installation from Settings > System > Activation > Change product key.

    If the Windows 10 was purchased from Microsoft then you can enter the product key and activate Windows 11.

    If it was not Microsoft then you could be surprised to find activation problems.

    (There is piracy.)
