    Licenses Serial Numbers are the same in desktop and Laptop!

    I ran portable program Speccy (Piriform Speccy) to check my system temperature like cpu and hard drives etc.... I'm seeing operating system windows 10 serial numbers in my desktop and laptop showing exactly the same. Is it normal?... I had separated license for each computer before upgrade to win 10.

    Note: I upgraded from win 8.1 for my desktop and clean installed for laptop. Both of them running win 8.1 previously.

    It's normal.
    Windows 10 doesn't use a product key to identify your computer.
