    Do you dual boot or use the same Windows key on another device?

    I run Windows 10 as VM and also run the same thing as native boot and it always asked me to confirm my MS Id when I switched from one to the other...

    To fix this I phoned MS and got my Windows 10 digital entitlement swapped for a Windows 10 key (this was free) and it stopped happening.

    In my experience (and I'm talking about MS account validation here - not Windows activation) the digital entitlement you get from the free upgrade is limited to one device without asking you to reconfirm your ID. A retail 10 key OTOH can be swapped back and forward with no problems.
