I have 4 new identical Dell PCs. The were supposed to come with Windows 8.1 pre-installed but with downgrade rights to Windows 7.
What we actually got was 4 PCs with Windows 7. The Windows 8 install media was included.
So I did a fresh install of Windows 8 onto one PC. I was not asked for a licence key at any point so I presume this is because the licence key that was embedded in the BIOS was used automatically.
I would now like to build up this one PC and take an image using Acronis. Will I then have any problems loading this image onto the other 3 PCs. Will each of those machines use the licence key embedded in their respective BIOSs.
