    Restore W-10 from W-8 MFG restore


    Lenovo Yoga 13 that came with W-8
    Had to do a restore to MFG, Windows 8.
    Can I download a W-10 iso and reinstall W-10???
    Please
    Pretty please
    Desperate to get rid of 8.
    Also, have Insider Preview on other machine so I'm registered there.
    Figure if I can install the 10, I'll do the Insider later from the last iso.

    Sure. Once a system has had W10 installed and activated, you can reinstall any time you like/need. The digital license resides on the MS servers.

    Wow, fastest answer ever.
    I thought so.
    I'll download the latest IP Build iso and go from there.
    Many thanks.
