Hello, I just bought a new Dell XPS 13 running an activated windows 10 home. I read that I could use the product key from my old xps running windows 7 pro to upgrade my new xps to windows 10 pro, which worked, but then it wasn't activated so I entered the generic win 10 pro key to see if that would work, but obviously it didn't since I'm here asking for help. I read that I should've clicked "skip" when trying to activate and it asked for a product key because it would've automatically activated, but I didn't know that. I believe it said I had a digital license before I upgraded to Windows 10 pro but I'm not sure how to get that information now. I think I'm somewhat knowledgeable about tech stuff, but after reading and searching how to solve my problem I realized I wouldn't be able to without help. My device info is below. Thanks for any advice.

Install Windows 10 Home or buy a legitimate Product Key for Windows 10 Pro. Closing, as we do not help with circumventing valid restrictions.
