Windows 10 Upgrade: If I Upgrade Then Revert Back Will My Computer Key Stay Registered?
From what I understand, once you upgrade to Windows 10, your product key gets registered with Microsoft. So if you ever had to do a clean install, Microsoft would let you with your existing key. Not sure if you would need to type in an actual key or not, or if they would just know based on your MOBO or something.
So if I upgraded to Windows 10,which registers my product key with them, then reverted back to Windows 7 (within 30 days), would my Windows 10 key still be valid in the future?
In my case, it probably isn't a big deal. These computers will be recycled by the 2020 death date for Windows 7.
I should also probably make a couple of Windows 10 ISOs before the deadline. Does anyone have the best link for that? I could probably google, but there's so many spyware sites, and I'm sure someone knows a direct link.
