Computer A is upgraded from a genuine Win 7 or 8 to Windows 10. Activated and digital entitled.
A bootable media is created.
I change Computer A's motherboard to a new one but not the same make and model.
I then use the same bootable media to reinstall Windows 10 onto Computer A.
1. Can reinstalling Windows 10 actually be done this way ?
2. If yes, will the reinstalled Windows 10 be activated automatically ?
My understanding is.......................... No, it does not get activated automatically.
New mobo = new computer.
Installing Windows 10 into a new mobo with nothing in it will not get activated automatically because the digital entitlement is not in effect. There is none.
I might be able to talk to MS to get the system activated, but no guarantees.
You answer please.
