    Known Changes To System That Maintain Windows 10 Activation


    On a test box I have changed:

    CPU - different model, L2 Cache and speed.
    RAM - different make, specs and capacity.
    HDD - different make, cache and capacity.

    Windows 10 stayed activated for both the existing install and a clean install.

    Post any other changes you have made that maintain activation.


    Edit:

    This system was originally running Win 7 Pro 64bit and was upgraded to Win 10 Pro 64bit using the free upgrade offer.

    Was the original install a OEM or Full version?

    That's on a box that was originally upgraded from Win 7 Pro 64bit using the free upgrade offer.
