    Activating Windows 10 (upgraded Windows 7) on another motherboard


    So we have 2 pcs in our household, we took the windows 10 upgrade offer, sadly 10 did not work with my motherboard as its no longer supported with drivers by intell.

    So i decided to get an upgrade package (new motherboard, processor and ram) and while i was at it, i got one for my wife too.

    Now as i understand it, our "reserved" windows 10's are bound to the old hardware.

    Is there any way to unbind it and bind it to the new hardware, or are we forced to stay with 7 for now?

    If you have Windows 7 installed and activated on the new motherboards, you can upgrade those to Windows 10.
