    How will i be able to install my windows 10?


    I've upgraded my windows 7 to windows 10 months ago and now I started wondering what happens If I need to change the computer. Will my windows 7 activation code still work along with win7 DVD? If this computer 'dies' for example and I need to buy a new one how will I be able to use windows 10 that I have right now? I hope my question makes sense.

    You can do a clean install of win10 on that PC you don't need a key it's stored on ms servers if you buy a new PC you would need to buy windows

    What about new HDD? I had to replace it a few times already.

    New HDD won't affect it.

    But will I be able to install windows 10 with my windows 7 DVD or must I make a backup (use USB as installer)?
