    Windows 10 Refurbished Machine


    Hi,


    I'm working with a company that recently purchased Windows 10 refurbished machines. One of the machines has become corrupted during a Windows Update, and any recovery will not work. I'm going to reinstall Windows but none of these machines have license stickers on them, although they all show activated.


    How can I ensure I don't run into activation issues when reinstalling the OS.


    Thanks,


    Chris

    :)

    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

  3. Win 10 for refurbished machines

    I just purchased a refurbished win 10 machine with an OEM win10 Home for refurbished machines.

    I activated it and it runs well.

    My questions are as follows.

    1. Can I upgrade the old 500GB HD to an SSD?

    2. How do I go about installing the SSD and transfering over the OS? (from a 500GB HD to a 500GB SSD ... there has been nothing installed except for drivers for a new video card)

    3. The size of the 'old HD" is larger than the "new SSD" (likely due to over provisioning supported in win10)

    4. I am leary of using the Samsung migration software since prior migrations were fraught with problems

    Thanks in advance

    Confused
