[SOLVED] upgrade

is it necessary and can i use the same product key to activate Windows
If you dont there are a few possible outcomes. It might bootup ok and work but more likely if it boots you will be chasing issues indefinitely or it might not even boot. It is recommended to just reinstall.

As for licence key, what version of Windows and where did it come from? Did your licence come from a prebuilt system or did you buy it?

Then it’s transferable to a new system. If it’s Windows 10 it is easiest to link the licence to your Microsoft account, this makes transferring very easy.
i linked it to Microsoft account. so now i just reinstall windows log into my account and will it reactivate?
