No worries Craig mate I didn't do anything much but as long as it offered some feedback which is all important you could not do the great job you are.
Just wished I had the brains you have I am just in computing because of my wrecked shoulder which stops any motor cycling and woodwork and I have to have one small vice - - but I have to say have messed with electronic stuff since vacuum tubes as a sort of fascination - now and addiction LOL!!
Thanx John, much appreciate your help and persistence in getting ShowKey working correctly....
Thanks Shawn for taking the time mate the OEM I have installed on the machine I wanted it on and it is activated with that digital entitlement - I was just concerned it wouldn't let me use the 7 key again - so in effect I have two activation codes in the machine? even though currently the code for the 10 is the generic one as I haven't entered the code on the package.
Now it does say on the package that the code is not a COA what it all that about??
Having said all that I have swapped the 7 drive back in and have had no messages to say non genuine. The pics you can see in this Installing an OEM - Windows 10 Forums
With kindest regards
I would wait until you can install the OEM Windows 10 Pro on the PC you want it on. An OEM copy is permanently tied to the PC it is first activated on, and cannot be activated on another PC.
If the W10 has its own key, then it won't have any affect on W7.
Hi and thanks for the rep! Much appreciated.
Hi John -
Health issues have kept me off the Forums but I'm back again. I'd be honored for your friendship on Ten like we had on Seven.
PMs are still available.
Where did you see that posted at about activation? As far as I know, that's not true. The W7 product key will always be able to activate W7 or the W10 you have the digital entitlement for. At most, you may have to activate by phone if it thinks you have the W7 key activated on more than one installation at the same time.
Happy Birthday John
