    I've seen mention of a key a few times, when I get the go ahead from MS, will the key be included in the email?

    When you do the free upgrade from within your old OS, it ties the key to your motherboard, at least from newer UEFI 8.1 PC's.

    ok thanks. I have official os versions so should not be a problem.

    I have a hybrid HDD and an HDD in mine.
