    OEM cloning windows 10


    Hi,


    I purchased a laptop with OEM windows 8.1 last year and managed to clone the HDD to an SSD after much trial and error.


    I wish to now upgrade to windows 10 on this cloned SSD but am concerned that I may run into issues with regard to boot manager etc...I don't want to clean install as I have a huge amount of software I don't want to reinstall on my SSD.


    Can anyone please tell me if it's safe to go ahead with this or what I need to consider before doing so?


    Thanks heaps in advance!


    Cheers

    :)

  2. Cloning OEM Windows 10 Pro to OEM Windows 10 Pro

    I have a few new PC's that I purchased off Newegg for a great price. All are the same make and model with identical specs and Windows 10 Pro OS. I want to run updates and install programs on one of the machines, and then clone the first machine using
    Clonezilla and then add that cloned image to the other 3 machines. Each PC has it's own specific OEM activation key. Can I add the cloned image to the other 3 PC's and then activate windows with the key originally assigned to the PC? Each PC will have it's
    own Windows 10 OEM activation key.

    Yes, you can do that.

    After cloning the image, do the following on each machine.

    Click Start > Settings > Update & security
    > Activation > Change the product key then enter the new product key then click
    Next to Activate

    OEM cloning windows 10

    Welcome to TenForums, MichaelK!

    To start off:

    1) Double check that your Win 8.1 is activated. If you've run it a while I imagine it is but you should double check.

    2) What size is the SSD and how much space is occupied?

    Is your computer running UEFI or BIOS? I just upgraded from 7/8/8.1 to 10 and without too much problem except that I was using a HHD that was having a problem. How much HD space to you have as backup system ? I have been using Macrium Reflect Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free (free version) and it really works well. Please tell us a bit more about your OS and computer - as there are several users here will and more able to assist you with the task of upgrading to Windows 10.
    thanks Cliff M.
