  1. Need to copy PC excactly to another PC and both activated. Both have OEM Windows 10 Pro.


    Need to copy a Lenovo Laptop onto a Dell workstation. Need them to be exact copies of each other. Both have OEM versions of Windows 10 Pro. Can we image the Dell PC with the backed up image from the Lenovo and still get Windows to activate? Using Acronis True Image, but the question is more how do we get the copy on the Dell to be activated? We have backups of the Lenovo and also a cloned hard drive, but now worry if the laptop stolen/disaster/etc. etc.

  2. Windows 10 and 7 Pro OEM activation

    Hi,

    From what I understand the Win 10 Pro OEM key can be used to activate Win 7 Pro OEM. Bascially I have a request to build a PC with Win 7 Pro, as this is need for the software used by the business. I have run out of copies
    of Win 7 Pro OEM.

    I've tried using a Win 10 Pro OEM key for a Win 7 Pro OEM activation, but it's not working, tells me the key is not valid. Am I suppose to install Win 10 pro OEM, activate it, and then install Win 7 pro OEM, and activate
    with the same key. I'm still getting orders for PCs with Win 7 Pro, and finally run out of copies.

    What is the correct procedure to activate an Win 7 Pro OEM install with a Win 10 Pro OEM key?

    Thanks

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
