How to report Windows 10 free upgrade key to a Microsoft audit


  • we have MS auditing our company. and our IT manager is giving everyone Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder to recover keys on those machines which used Windows 8/8.1 to Windows 10 free upgrade..

    [as you might know - free upgrades don't have publicly available keys]

    It does look like a hack to me. I don't believe that this is something that MS would endorse/promote.

    Most of the machines in question - are Dell laptops with OEM Windows 8/8.1 installs upgraded later to Windows 10.

    Are hacked keys acceptable form of MS audit procedure?

    What is the correct procedure?

  • No comment on "audit procedure".

    Just to say this :
    Magic Jelly Bean keyfinder is absolutely 100% legit. NOT a hacking program.

    The Win 10 so-called "product key" that Magic Jelly Bean will find is just the generic product key.

    It is known to general public.
