    More about observations than queries...........


    I am not sure if I should post at Virtualization or here.

    Brief background...........
    I have a Dell laptop started with Vista > upgraded to Win 8 Pro (retail upgrade version)> Win 8.1 Pro > Win 10 Pro
    I have an Acer laptop started with Win 7 Home Premium > upgraded to Win 10 Home.
    It has been 2 years or more since I last used VMware. I decided to "play" with it again.

    I installed VMware Workstation 12 (non-commercial) to my Acer laptop and I put Win 8.1 Pro ISO to the VM.
    At the start, I used the generic key to install. After installation completed, it was not activated. That's no surprise.
    So, I entered my Win 8 Pro key and I got activated.
    I thought my Win 8 Pro key was tied to my Dell laptop. I was shocked that the key was accepted.

    During the installation BEFORE it was even finished, I was prompted to upgrade to Win 10. ( screenshot #1)
    I clicked Do it later to continue.
    Then I was prompted with another message that it will later download in the background anyway (screenshot #2)
    I had to click Decline free upgrade or I could not continue. "Not recommended" ? Wow !
    Speaking of " hard sell". Pushy isn't it ?

  3. how about the n96?it is more powerful than n82/n95?

    Abt audio & video the n96 is much much better than n95/8gb/n82. I already checked side by side in my hand.

    More about observations than queries...........

    From what I've read MS activation servers probably don't keep a record of all uses of every license- more of a rolling record of more recent use. Thus if you tried to use a license key on two machines in quick succession that is much more likely to be rejected than using a key on a different machine after some years. I've had that experience in installing Win 10 using my Win 8 Pro key still used on my old and partly broken laptop. I'd expected to have to contact MS. However an attempt to set up a 32 bit virtual 32 bit Win 8 (to use some old hardware) with the same key was rejected.
