I've been getting some mixed answers to this via googling, hoping someone can give a definitive answer.
- I bought a retail boxed version of Windows 7 Home on launch. Full retail version that looked like this
- Whilst it was still a W7 license I did a major hardware change once (New mobo, CPU)
- Took the W10 upgrade offer early, has always been on the same hardware since then.
As I understand it my current W10 is activated via my MS account, not the product code that was on my W7 discs.
"Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft Account"
So, will I be able to de-activate the license on the current PC and activate it on 100% new hardware, or not? If so, which process do I need to undertake? The Windows website lists so many options.
