Community, I am debating upgrading to Windows 10, however I wanted to discuss a workaround.
I was planning on cloning my SSD with 8.1 on it and then upgrading the clone with the "free upgrade".
Because this would upgrade my license to a W10 one, I am concerned that my "original" will no-longer function properly, since the key will for all intents and purposes no longer exist as an 8.1 key....and judging from my extensive use of the internet, would talk to the MSFT servers upon next update check and find something awry.
Is this a legitimate concern?
