My laptop (Lenovo Y510p) came with Windows 8.1 normal edition. I have a desktop installed with a copy of 8.1 pro that I bought. I accidentally messed up some partitions while installing Linux and wish to reinstall Windows 8 on my laptop.
I have the license key for my Windows 8 normal edition, and I still have the USB drive that I used to install 8.1 Pro on my desktop. With that said, can I install 8.1 pro on my laptop and then use the Win 8 normal key to activate it?
