  2. i have a retail copy of windows 10 that i want to share with my new build

    You would not be able to customize your system. Many options in Settings would be disabled and a constant watermark would always be on screen.

    Otherwise, you would be able to install Windows Updates and use your apps.

    You will need to purchase an additional license if you want to install it on another computer.

    If you install it on the computer using the same key, it will invalidate the existing license when you activate.

    You can of course install Linux if that suits you.
