    It should, but I would imagine you'd have to do a clean install rather than an upgrade install.

    If you remove all traces of the previous install, it should yes.

    Can I change something in the registry instead of reset this countdown back to 90 days or even more?

    No, not legally. It's trial version. Buy the full Retail version of Windows 10 and its not a problem.
