    Kindly Help - Reinstall windows 8


    I Have purchased HP 15Boo2TX laptop with Windows 8 pre installed. As the performance was sluggish i downgraded the same to windows 7. deleting all backup files and HDD. Now i want to get windows 8(as i want to upgrade the same to windows 10). I downloaded an windows 8 iso and tried to install it but it says that the key is not matching with this version of windows. Kindly help. I Want to know which version of Windows 8 was installed on my laptop..and from where I can download the same

    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10


    this will show the product key and edition > https://www.tenforums.com/attachments...-1.0.5655-.zip

    you can then download and create windows 8.1 setup media > Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

    the media will read windows 8 / 8.1 product keys - no need to reinstall windows 8 at all..
