    Windows 3.1 > Windows 10


    you have to setup.exe from within your current OS to upgrade
    Do not boot from media to perform upgrade

    You must run the setup.exe from within windows 8.1 to perform an upgrade installation - and activate..
    Then once your PC has had the activation recorded - you can then clean install windows 10

    You MUST upgrade first to get the activation recorded
    Thanks... It worked fine.
