    ^^^^ Thank you so very much for your directions. Yes, all installs (Win8.1Pro/Win10Pro) are done on the same computer. It's a Windows 8 Pro OEM license that I bought.

    As I understand from your post, I'm out of the dangerzone regarding the EULA.

    W10 re-installation for a machine that was upgraded from W81 to W10

    I managed to update my Windows 8.1 Pro x64 SSD (Winclone copy for testdriving) to Windows 10 AU-1607. It auto activated with the digital license!

    I had to UNINSTALL my ESET Smart Security v9 av software first, after the update was installed, I re-installed ESET. Piece of cake!

    Thanks to all who tried to help me solve this!
