Windows 10 installation question on failed systems after July
Posted on 2016-09-12
We took advantage of the windows 10 upgrade when Microsoft was offering it but I am learning that if your your system was not designed for windows 10 you can't install it from an OEM disc, or so I am told. We had some workstations that were shipped with a dell windows 10 disc but they cannot be used on older dell systems. So those we upgraded from windows 7 to 10 when MS was offering free upgrades if those drives fail we cannot put windows 10 back onto those systems and we have essentially lost the free upgrade. Am I correct in assuming that we will have to purchase windows 10 license for those systems?
