Can I activate windows 10 with my windows 8 product key?

Windows XP

Asked by: Vinay banakar

I have a Windows 8 (9200 build), lately i downloaded all the updates so that I could install 10, but I repeatedly got 

"Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer" so I am on the verge of following this article to fix it . But I am lately fed up of it and I just want to get win 10, so can I simply download and use my key there? will that work?

1-You need to be on win 8.1 (build 9600) to upgrade

2-No you cannot use your key.  Win 10 is an upgrade to an existing OS

3-If there is a problem (there appears to be) you should fix it before you upgrade.
