In this post we will be discussing MBR vs GPT comparisons and how to find your windows 10 product
key. These are both important topics when it comes to computer maintenance and keeping things
running smoothly. We hope you find this post informative and helpful!
What is MBR?
MBR stands for Master Boot Record and it’s the older of the two partitioning styles. MBR has been
used on computers for a long time and it’s compatible with just about every operating system out
there. The main disadvantage of MBR is that it can only support up to 4 primary partitions or 3
primary partitions and 1 extended partition. This can be restrictive for some users who want more
flexibility with their partitioning.
What is GPT?
GPT stands for GUID Partition Table and its the newer of the two partitioning styles. GPT doesnt
have the same restrictions as MBR so its able to support more partitions. GPT is also required if you
want to use UEFI which is a newer boot method thats faster than BIOS. The main disadvantage of
GPT is that it requires UEFI which isnt compatible with all operating systems.
How to find your windows 10 product key?
Windows 10 Product Keys are float around the net, there are a couple of Windows 10 Hacks which
might be legitimate as Windows needs to furnish keys to Microsoft like with any product. Windows
uses what’s called a digital license to confirm your product key. The digital license is a new method
of activation in Windows 10 that doesn’t require us to enter an activation code. If you upgraded
from Windows 7 or 8, your digital license will be turned on automatically after upgrading to
Windows 10 and you won’t need a product key. After you upgrade to Windows 10, it’ll be activated
automatically using the digital license connected to your Microsoft account. If you continue having
problems with Windows activation, contact customer support. They should be able to help you
troubleshoot any issues you’re having. Thanks for choosing Windows 10!
Your product key is a 25-character code that’s used to activate Windows. This code looks like this:
PRODUCT KEY: XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX. You’ll need to provide a product key when you
install Windows 10, unless you’re reinstalling it on the same device where it’s already activated. If
you have a digital license, you don’t need a product key.
To find your product key in Windows 10, see Find your Windows product key. If you can’t find your
product key, there are a few other ways to get it from a Windows 10 device:
• If you upgraded from an earlier version of Windows, your licence was activated
automatically after connecting to Microsoft’s activation servers during the upgrade process. You
won’t need a product key because your licence was arried over automatically.
• If Windows 10 was preinstalled by an original equipment manufacturer (PC maker), your
licence might be tied to that specific hardware and won’t transfer automatically to another PC if you
replace significant parts (like the motherboard) in that PC later on. In these cases, contact customer
support for that PC maker for help reactivating Windows on your device using their Digital Product
