    Hypothetically Shawn instead of mucking around with different drives and virtual machines just to try this out is it possible to just put a new drive into a machine and install the 10 and then if I want to go back to whatever I had on the machine before just replace the drive again. So in essence I would have two activation codes on that board?

    Hey John,

    Sure you could do that and swap the drives for which one you would want to boot from, but the activation code for Windows 10 would be stored in Windows 10.

    If that was an OEM computer, then only the original product key would be stored in the UEFI firmware chipset for the original OS.

    How can you install the Win 10 if you don't have a USB flash drive? I have burned the .iso's to a DVD to use to install with. Can it only to be installed using the USB flash drive? Right now all I get when trying to install from the DVD is the blue icon and that is all it does.

    When using a DVD, it would be best to install without UEFI.

    You can get a 4 GB USB flash drive pretty cheap (around $5 or so) these days though.
