Windows – Will Windows Vista COA Keys work as a valid product key for Windows 10

windowswindows-vista

I have a Windows Vista Home Premium Laptop with a genuine license key. I was wondering if that key would be accepted as a valid key for Windows 10 if I downloaded the ISO from Microsoft and tried to install it.

Thanks.

PS: The Vista copy I have currently is loaded with bloatware. If I downloaded a Windows Vista Home Premium ISO (say, torrent) and tried to install it, would this key work?
