Windows 10: W10 upgrade failure
Because of the issues yesterday - want to get my W7 license sorted before I attempt upgrade again.
When I put the disc in I get the following window ...
I went a couple of steps in ... it says it will install one copy pre-activated of any W7 version
I have multiple HD .... could I install on a different HD without impacting current install .... just concerned about impact on BIOS
This is another bad sign if they are all in the system....meaning the MBR is on a previous HDD which could be part of the activation error you are getting.
Yes, you can install it on a different hard drive.
Even if HD is in same machine connected to same mobo.?
If it is OK I could try an install ... can I just add it to a HDD or should I create a new partition.
windows activated r2 ??????
Looks shady to me.
