so about 1 and haft year ago I bought Windows 8.1 and was able to use my product key to active Windows 10. but when Windows 10 Anniversary Update. came out i got into one of those restart loop crashes and have to reinstall windows 8.1.

so my big Question is can i use Media Creation tool and upgrade my windows once more.

i think you would may be able to use the win 8.1 key for windows 10, if not, i would contact Microsoft by phone probably and explain and you should be able to get win 10 back. i know someone that did, if not, stick with 8.1

No need to install an older version. When you upgraded to Windows 10, your 8.1 key was converted to a Windows 10 key. Install windows 10 as normal and use your Win8.1 key.
