    Reinstall windows as UEFI with OEM Win10?


    Hello,


    I have an OEM version of Windows 10 which I accidentally installed as Legacy, instead of UEFI. Now, I am trying to install Debian alongside of it, and I require UEFI. Can I reinstall Windows as UEFI without losing my OEM license?

    :)

    Win10: windows update stuck at never ending loop ?

    When in win10:
    • Update&security -> Windows update -> Finding update... .... .... ....
    Planning to download the latest Win10.ISO (vers.1803) and manually update:
    - Then wait that my ordered new SSD arrives and clone the old HDD to it.

    While i am sure you have solved your problem, if you have not...

    since the key is in the bios, try installing win10, microsoft seems to imply that win10 installer "sees" oem keys that you in bios (Windows 10 gets A digital entitlement Activation)

    Upgrading OEM Win10 Home to MSDN Win10 Pro


    Moving to a new PC that I'm building myself. Currently running Dell OEM Win10 Home. New PC will have Win10 Pro, MSDN (multi-activation or retail keys) version.


    My backup software can do a "system transfer" that will allow me to transfer everything (OS and applications) to the new computer.


    Should I upgrade from OEM Home to MSDN Pro on the old computer and then transfer everything to the new computer?


    Or just install Win10 PRO MSDN on the new computer and use the backup software vendor's application transfer program to move the applications and registry entries?


    My goals are:

    1. Not have any "dinosaur bones" either from the OS on my SSD from the old OEM Home version on the new PRO version

    1. Not have to reinstall and reconfigure everything (which would take about a week)

    Thanks for any advice I can get...
