    Glad we could help Jeff. :)

    When you upgrade to the free Windows 10 on an activated Windows 7/8.1 PC, the Windows 10 activation for your PC is stored on Microsoft's activation servers as a digital entitlement license.

    The future-upgraded Win 10 Key won't be stored in firmware on ANY motherboard. All Windows 10 upgrades from Windows 7/8/8.1 get the same product keys (depending on the version; home, pro, etc.). No version of Windows has ever stored Product Keys to motherboard firmware. Manufacturers with OEM licenses started storing product keys in bios beginning with Windows 8 - but the Windows operating system never has, and still doesn't.
    Thanks again for the info :)
