    I have NOT agreed with anything you said yet, and maybe you're right. Just wanted to be more practical to learn. Sorry to get you so emotional.

    From my understanding, the upgrade stuffs is logged in the Windows Store, so when you fresh install, it will see that you've installed and activated Windows 10 before on that machine.

    That's certainly correct relate to your MSA account with any machines you've own. For my understanding, MS store has nothing to do with your Windows validation.

    Correct, Microsoft Account doesn't have to do anything with the activation. Activation and machine data is stored in Microsoft Activation Servers, it will activate as soon as the registered computer is connected to the internet whether you're logged on with your MSA or not, Microsoft account only stores the computer info for account verification purposes but not the activation itself.

    So my question is what if you upgraded from a retail version of 7 or 8 and later change some hardware in that same machine. How would you go about reactivating, especially if you did a clean install after the switch?

    The only thing that triggers a new activation is replacing the motherboard. In that case, it's treated as transferring to a new PC. You must install Windows 7/8.1 then upgrade again.

    Unless you have a full transferable 7/8.1 license. 99% sure!
