Quick run down of history and couple of OS questions
This is my new build for which I bought Windows 10 Home
I've also got an aging Dell Vostro laptop which has a copy of Pro on it, I think it started off life as Windows 7 and it has free upgraded its way up to Windows 10 Pro
The new build is up and running.
I was just going to do a format and a fresh install on the laptop, and the question was going to be do I need to unregister the key to reuse it on a formatted install or is it clever enough to realise it going back on the same PC
Now I'm thinking:
Can I pull the PRO serial (deregister it) off the laptop and do a fresh install of the PRO on to the new build (I'm assuming I can download a copy of Windows 10 Pro and make my own bootable USB?)
At the same time deregister the serial of the Windows 10 HOME on the new build and chuck that on the Dell Laptop
And also.. is it worth it?
Hope that all makes sense :)
