I can't seem to find an answer for this anywhere, maybe I'm not asking it correctly...
I'm building a budget build for a friend and giving them a great deal on an i5/mobo/ram that I have in a current build (hooray upgrade time!) In this build I had Win 7 installed but then upgraded to 10. I've read that the upgrade from 7 to 10 makes your copy effectively an OEM one, which means it'll be tied to the mobo.
If that's the case, will I be able to install 10 on their new SSD and just reuse the same key on their new system since the cpu/mobo won't have changed? I'll already have a new copy of 10 for my own upgrade, but before I unbuild and then make two new builds I want to make sure I'm not going to just lose a copy of windows.
