    Creation tool is most likely needed. Unsure if you'll be able to activate the previous key? There are, well, other methods if need be.

    Yeah I'm thinking that the 8/10 key is permanent and retained so mct should be all I need. Just sucks I went the long way about this and am basically installing windows twice now.

    Last I heard the disability method was gone? Haven't tried to student it before either. Fuck it, new laptop? Lol.

    There is a new "das loader" for 10. I've used it a few times without issue.

    10 should be forever per motherboard. That's just weird it reverted on you like that. Glad you're back in business.

    It was so stupid. It even asked me during the reset if I wanted to reset to 10.

    Man, even 10 minutes of win 8 just to download and install the tool was terrible. Never taking my USB boot of 10 out of my laptop bag again.

    AFAIK the normal "use Win7/8 key to install Win10" method still works even though the "upgrade period" ended months ago. Microsoft wants ppl to use/upgrade to Win10, why should they stop them from doing so?
    And even if that should have failed, through the upgrade your laptop got a digital entitlement license that is bound to the hardware. So as long as it's the same laptop you can re-install Win10 as often as you like and the license will stay.
