    By the way. One of things I do to remind me of maintenance schedules on a new device is to use a sticky label with the next maintenance date written on (every xx months depending on the system). So, for example, I've just built and installed a new system with a custom water loop. So the sticky label goes on the side door. Maybe you could do something similar for yourself to keep track of install dates. :)

    Exactly. That is what I was referring to. A clean install. Using the same words others have used.
    Ah, just run Showkey found on this forum. It will tell you a previous OS Product Key if you were upgraded!

    On a clean install it will show only your current product key and any that are stored in bios that a clean install would not erase anyway.
