    Can I use license of Windows 10 of broken computer to upgrade my Vista


    I do have a Vista OS in my computer. I understand it can not be uppgraded right away to Windows 10. But my brothers hardware was damaged badly. He had Windows 10 in that computer. Is it possible to use that lisence?

    If someone can help, I'm grateful, of course.

    If it was a purchased Retail Edition yes. If it was a factory OEM install no. What was the original OS on that now dead PC? How was windows 10 installed on it?
