Hello everybody. Am an analyst artist and writer. I've been involved with all things computer for too many years. Loved consoles and loved things like Atari, Commodore 64 you get the picture. My first expensive PC had a quarter of a gig hard drive, 64mg of memory and a dot matrix printer. Windows 1 WOW. Anyway my question is this. I have 3 laptops, one I bought about 3 years ago, second hand. It had windows 7 on it. It was fine accepted all the updates and the copy was fine. It tried to update itself to Windows 10 a while ago and now it won't work.1. 3.6 It is stuck in the loop of pick an option then when you do nothing and reboots. It also says that the copy of windows is illegal. It's not. I'm furious. Anyhow on my other two laptops I have shiny new windows 10 ( I liked 1, 3.6 95 98SE 2000 XP adored, 8 and hmmm.) Anyway is there anyway I can put my Windows 10 with the serial numbers etc. on the older lappy? Anyway any thoughts appreciated. I'm out of practice at the moment as I've been busy writing and painting. I've built computers for people but am behind with a lot of tech.
Unfortunately the Windows 10 licence is tied to the machine you performed the upgrade on and is not transferable.Anyway is there anyway I can put my Windows 10 with the serial numbers etc. on the older lappy?
