This is a little confusing.  If I understand this correctly you have two computers which at one time both had Windows 10 installed in them.  The new computer came with Windows 10, so I would have to assume that the old computer had Windows ten installed on it at one time at least.  If this is the case there shouldn't be any problem since the product code is digitally recorded.  This means that you can reinstall Windows 10 on this computer.  You would need to have the same version that was installed originally, ex:  Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.  You can use the Media Creation Tool to create Windows 10 installation media for a disc or flash drive. There are three options, use the second option Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC.

Please answer my questions in my previous post.

 

Is the computer that you want to install Windows 10 the old one?

 

Did this computer have Windows 10 installed on it at any time?

 

What operating system do you have installed on this computer currently?

 

If you had Windows 10 installed on that computer you can use the instructions in my previous post.

 

If you did not have Windows 10 installed on this computer but had Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 you can upgrade to Windows 10 by using the Assistive Technologies option.  Microsoft doesn't check to see if you are using Assistive Technologies or not so you will have no problem doing this upgrade.  This option will cease to be available by December 31st of this year.

I see your last post mirrors the PM you sent me.  There is a forum rule which states that topics can not be discussed via PMs.

 

Now I understand what you were asking.  Unfortunately I do not know of any way to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro without purchasing a product code for that version.
