    Win 10 Pro Insider Preview Build 14295
       03 Apr 2016 #501

    I retired from IBM in 1991 after 34 years. I happen to be a good example of why some folks think IBM stands for I Been Moved. I have not yet scanned all the Replies in this thread but am heartened to see some folks with similar backgrounds. I began my "techie" career thanks to the USN who schooled me in computers used in shipboard Fire Control. Nothing to do with fires, but positions large guns to fire at land targets, other ships and aircraft. Joined IBM after 4 fun years with USN and then enjoyed many different career paths e.g., servicing mainframes, marketing, development, research and management. I currently "play" with my old Dell laptop and a Lenovo desktop. I started with one of the early IBM PCs in '81 and stayed mostly with PC vs Apple since I focus mostly on the technology and not the end user aspect. Both of my current systems are running W-10 Insider Preview Build 14295, one Home and one Pro. The desktop does most of the heavy lifting, MS Office, music and photo organization, email and maintenance of a website hosted elsewhere. The laptop has little of it's own on it but lets me work in my LazY Boy while watching TV. I use Clouds to share data between the two and use a stand alone NAS box for backup.

    I like Windows 10 over 7 and 8.1 because I believe it begins transitioning to and from many device types, and interfaces. Hopefully one day we will be able to enjoy a single system that works across all computers with common interfaces.

    I have two questions for anyone:
    How do you enter more than one system in the profile?
    And, if I replace my laptop with a new one, can I "move" my Win 10 Pro system over to it? The replacement system may be a laptop/tablet but would most likely have Win 10 Home on it from the vendor. I enjoy the "Insider" program and the Pro copy of 10 and would like to keep them. I have no problem losing any personalization or data on the old laptop.

    Welcome to the forums rjn111, we're glad to have you here. As far as entering 2 systems, I use the bottom part "Other Info" to enter some of my other systems. Others have come up with more creative ways.

    Windows 10 links itself to serial numbers inside the hardware, so you wouldn't be able to move the OS without contacting Microsoft. People have had problems with the OS no longer working after replacing hardware because of it. I don't know whether MS would let you transfer the OS though.

    If you buy a system with Home you will have to buy the license through the Store or other vendor. Settings > System > About > Change your product key or upgrade your edition or Windows. Press that link for your choices.

    As others have said there are other creative methods. Most important is follow any UELA of a license. Secondly is to obtain Digital Entitlement.

    If you click on the title of a forum and get to the page with the forum title and a list of threads, there should a "Post New Thread" button on the left near the top of the page, and another near the bottom. If you don't see one there, I don't really know what else to do.

    Greetings, Amigos! My wife and I are Americans who are happily retired in Mexico for 11 years. I used to teach high school science, and I actually wrote a high school computer science course for my school--we taught Basic.

    We each have our own computer, and we also have three Windows 8 laptops, Spanish language edition, upgraded to Windows 10. We have kids from two orphanages, plus our church, come over to use them.

    I got onto this forum so I could find out how to run scannow in Spanish, but I've learned a few other things and have been able to post some helpful information as well.
