    Windows 10 on second pc


    Hi , i have a PC that originally had a hdd with windows 10 on it and came with my PC already installed, since then i have upgraded to ssd so i copyied windows to the ssd.
    I am now building a new amd rig (was intel), and keeping the intel pc for the mrs ,and i want to have windows on both.
    I think there is still windows on the old hdd.
    So what will happen when i boot the old hdd ? will it work or block windows etc, i have activated windows and i think its oem .
    Will i be able to run both Pc's like this or will i have to buy another windows cd?
    Thanks Mark

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    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?
