So I had this Dell Inspiron that came with windows 8.1, I'm assuming it was OEM. I later got the free upgrade to windows 10, now I'm wondering, is it still tied to the mobo? I'm building a new computer and I don't want to have to pay for windows, I'm also re using the HD that came with the dell because I'm on a budget. My windows product ID is : 00326-10000-00000-AA142
I can't really tell whether this is OEM or if it is now considered retail and whether or not I will have trouble using this in a new system. I have the CD key for this also, incase that makes any difference. Just wondering if I will have trouble putting this in my new system or is there a different way I can go about this that will work.(Without buying a new windows ofcourse). I also put a bootable windows 10 onto a flash drive.
This is my first ever PC build so I've never booted windows or anything before.
