    SO true.. you should have a year to upgrade your hardware before you upgrade to Win10 from Win8.1

    No problem.. I did all of my hardware upgrades already... including a new motherboard. So I should be set for a bit.

    My 8.1 is sharing the same machine of my 10 Insider preview in a different drive. Everything else are fine except that 8.1 drive is too small and too slow and still stays at x86.

    I thought Microsoft said retail versions are still transferable? I read that in a thread here.

    Yes, retail licenses are transferable. The free 10 deal is an upgrade - it gets you an upgrade license, good for the life of that device - not transferable.

    That's not how upgrades worked up til now, upgrading retail Vista to 7, gave retail W7. Mishandling that would bring a lot of grief to MS upgrade being free or not.

    Now, I am really confused.

    I thought windows 7 retail upgrade to windows 10. That windows 10 would still be transferable to another system. I think it was @Wynona or @Mystere that said the transferable right still remain. Microsoft just released the EULA recently.

    If not, I need to know because I may not be upgrading my system correctly.

    I have two options to upgrade
    Windows 7 Oem_Slp to windows 10 or
    Windows 7 Retail to windows 10

    I couldn't find anything direct related in other threads after a search. Maybe Brink would like to start an new thread on this:

    "Will Windows 7/8.1 retail licenses upgraded to Windows 10 still remain transferrable?"
