<Multi-machine upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Looking at some of he threads on here, this will be small beer, but here goes. 

I wish to upgrade a PC and also a laptop.  What's the most appropriate way to get and/or process the upgrade software so that the second machine can be upgraded without having to pay twice and/or start again?

My laptop isn't very old and my PC has recently been beefed up, so I wish to re-use them rather than ditch and buy new.  Both have SSDs, the laptop 5GB RAM, the PC with 8GB RAM, both with plenty of free memory.  Anything else I need to worry about?

Hi again,

I got an email circular yesterday containing this link:


I'm tempted to try it but note: "Enter any Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 key that hasn’t previously been used to upgrade to 10 ..."  I'm wondering if this would be a problem because I did install W10 in the very early days and had so much trouble with it that I reverted to W7.  Would this key therefore already be "on file"?
