Intresting Upgrade path

Recommended Posts

So through a complete fluke it appears that you can get 2 windows 10 upgrades if you happen to have Windows 8 pro.

My old PC was triple booting Linux mint, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

I initially had Windows 8 pro but it came with a free upgrade to Windows 8.1 at the time so I did the upgrade. Then later on I upgraded to Windows 10 pro.

Fast forward.... I build a new PC and I install my Windows 8 pro on it, then upgrade to Windows 10 and all is well activation fine.

Since I pulled all my drives out of the old PC to reuse them in the new PC, I ordered a new 1tb drive to do a fresh install of Windows 10 pro from USB onto a brand new drive on the old PC. So Windows does store your hardware profile for future fresh installs as it worked no problem and activate fine.

So my recomendation if you have two PC's is the following.

PC 1 - Install Window 8 pro --> upgrade to Windows 8.1 pro --> Upgrade to Windows 10 ( Now this PC can install Windows 10 pro from now on it is locked to the machine)

PC 2 - Install Windows 8 pro --> Upgrade to Windows 10 pro ( Now this PC can install Windows 10 pro from now on it is locked to the machine)
