    A month Ago I Upgraded My PC from Window 7 ultimate To 10, By downloading ISO file from Media Creation Tool than Uses Rufus To transfer that ISO ( 32 bit ) to USB and successfully Upgraded my PC to Window 10 Pro

    Today Without Doing Any Research
    I Upgraded My Friend PC from Window 10 ultimate To Window 10 Pro N ( don't know why I clicked on N ) Using Same Bootable USB

    Right after Setting up everything we tried to activate window using His W7 key it's Shows invalid

    Tried this and that for 3 hours without anyhope and than don't know why but I installed Jellybean key finder And Bang that software was showing MY Window Key & Product ID

    So we just copy pasted that ( mine ) key into activation window And it's got accepted

    I thought ok that's fine but
    Yet it's still show activate window logo everywhere

    See This Too :-

    Was checking his build info and found this -
    32bit operating system x64 based processor

    So as usual asked to google about it
    And got the answer in simple words - YOU CAN INSTALL 64BIT OS

    Need Your Help Here ---

    What to do about that key situation mine key is working fine in his PC for couple of hours & key finder software showing my key instead of his

    ///

    I thought after update that window.old file will have restore file but system found nothing automatically ( was originally thinking about to downgrade to W7 and than Install W10Pro 64 bit )

    = HOW TO GET THINGS BACK TO NORMAL
    NOW ? ( That key situation )

    = How to upgrade from that W10 Pro N
    32bit To 64 bit ?
    ( I made another bootable USB but with 64bit
    this time but it's not booting on startup at
    all )

    the free win 10 upgrade expired long ago. though it will still work for some computers, it will not work with all for various reasons. I think your friend is out of luck.

    I concur the above. Unfortunately you have to purchase a Windows 10 key now.
