Reinstalling WIn 10 to DELL XPS12, supplied with Win 8 OEM

Jump to solution

I MAY HAVE TO reinstall Windows unfortunately as I can't reclaim ownership of my C drive, though can access files on it. (Screenshot)- trying to find workround.

If I can't recover ownership and have to reinstall Windows (don't think Dell came with a Win8 b\ up disc), would I then have to pay to upgrade back to Win 10, now we're out of free period??

Tks

Once the system has been upgraded and activated, it has a digital entitlement - just reload Windows 10 (you can get the media from Microsoft;  make sure it's the same version -- probably 10, not 10 Pro) -- as you currently have.
