    Revoking Digital Licence -- possible ????


    Hi there

    I've got an older Sony VAIO laptop with a digital licence -- wiped it clean because I want to donate to charity.

    But if they install any windows from scratch will the Ms servers have the old digital license / hardware footprint on it.

    I'm happy to donate no longer needed pieces of hardware to charity -- but I really need them to install all their own software etc -- so how can one delete / revoke a digital license for a particular PC. I just want to revoke it --not report as Piracy etc -- it's a decent charity !!.

    Cheers
    jimbo

    Will my Windows 10 licence get revoked if I upgraded from Windows 8.1 with a DreamSpark licence?

    Hello!

    Short story:

    My current Windows 10 licence was reserved using a limited time (DreamSpark) Windows 8.1, due to end this October. Will my current Windows 10 licence be revoked as well?

    Long story:

    I'm a computer science student in Romania (at the Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj), and our) faculty has it's own DreamSpark store, from witch I downloaded and installed Windows 8.1 on my computer (about two years ago. Last year, I used that 8.1 installation
    to reserve my Windows 10 upgrade, than I successfully upgraded to 10, and I'm still using Windows 10 as my default OS.

    But from this point forward, I'm not sure what is going to happen:

    I finished the last university year (the 3rd one), and if my theory is right, my DreamSpark account will be closed starting this fall, and my licences will be revoked. This would not be a problem on it's own, but I'm afraid, that this will automatically
    revoke my Windows 10 licence too, because I used a limited time licence (of Windows 8.1) to reserve an upgrade.

    So my question is, should I be worried? Should I swiftly clean install a Windows 7 (I purchased one with my computer), then update it till I get to reserve another Windows 10 licence freely? Or everything will be OK, and my current Windows 10 licence will
    left intact?

    Thanks in advance for the help! Revoking Digital Licence -- possible ???? :)

    Digital Licences

    Yes you can have more than one Digital Licence attached . . .

    The Windows 10 Digital Licence is actually attached to the PC/Laptop to which it is applied.

    Attaching to your Account means you own that PC/Laptop, you can attach as many PC's to your account as you wish.

    Then, say if you were to sell a PC, you can remove it from your Account

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
