  2. Wipe a dual boot machine and reinstall Win 10?

    I have an old machine that started out on Win 7. I updated/upgraded over the years and it now has two SSDs one with Win 7, the other with Win 10. I created the dual boot a long time ago from the Win 7 drive.

    I'm worried wiping will negate my Win 10 lisence since it was an upgrade not the original OS. I have the original Win 7 serial, but I don't think that is relevent to the process any more.
    At any rate, I'd like to give the machine to an elderly neighbor, so I need to wipe it and reinstall Win 10. I don't know where to begin. Anyone able to point me in the right direction, for a step by step?

  3. How to reinstall Windows 10 if my computers used the free upgrade from 7 and 8?

    Will windows 10 still accept the license keys from 7 and 8 now if I reinstall my computer?

    Does Microsoft keep a list of users who upgraded to Win 10 using their 7 and 8 keys so that when users need to reinstall windows 10 the old keys would work?

    Do I need to call in Microsoft to ask them to activate my Windows 10 when I give them my win 7 keys?

    Both computers are laptops. The windows 7 machine had the serial printed on the back, and I needed to enter that when I upgraded to 10. The windows 8 machine had the serial built in inside its boot system so I didn't need to enter the key when I upgraded to 10, but I did manage to write down the keys using a fetcher program.

    how do i reinstall win 10 on old hp machine after hdd failure?

    New Laptop with Win 10 64bit and Old with Win 10 64bit

    Hello,

    I am somewhat of a Newbie when dealing with laptops and OSs .I am getting a new HP Envy 17t laptop with Win 10 installed and 1TB HDD. I have an old HP Pavillion DV5 1235dx laptop with Win 10 installed with a 250GB SSD. The Envy has the ability to use 2
    drives. My step-daughter needs a laptop and was going to give her the old one. Should I just get new HDD for old laptop and in new Envy install 2 drives 1 SSD (250GB) and 1 HDD (1TB). I will have 2 different Win 10 OS I wanted to pass 1 Win 10 to step- daughter.
    Should I give her the 1TB HDD and purchase a new drive for new Envy? Should I get another SSD or HDD for Envy? When using 2 drives and 1 for storage (pictures, documents etc.) is a 1TB HDD better to use than SSD? I have to keep cost at a minimum because I'm
    100% disabled from a work accident, and live on Social security and small Pension. I use my laptop as away to the outside, since i'm home and in lift recliner most of the day. I work with tons of pictures, writing, a family tree, blogging and searching the
    web.

    What would be the best set-up drive wise? How hard is it to set up the 2 drives in the new Envy? Can you give me helpful tips and maybe links on How to Do? I would also have to remove folders and files stored on the 250GB SSD to get back to clean drive.
    Should I store them in a cloud drive or flash drives and than restore back to a clean Win 10 ? Leave programs like Word, Excel, Office,etc and downloads like System Mechanic, Revo Unistaller, etc on SSD or reinstall and

    re-download?

    Thank You for any help you can give me on these questions or links, I deeply appreciate it.

    John
