That scenario is one where the original RETAIL (there has never been a "stand alone") LICENSE is converted into and mind you this is what I"m seeing, a license locked to that machine. To reactivate the 7 after the 30 days will take a call to Microsoft from what I've read.
I've seen such fail and folk reinstall to another PC then upgrade and it's all good but you are sitting on what looks like a 30 day limit till it turns into a call to Microsoft.
Hi all, Thanks in advance for any replies. I installed a stand alone license version of Windows 7 on my daughters laptop and immediately upgraded it to Windows 10. Two days later the laptop fried. The license for the Windows 7 disk and the upgrade are no longer on any machine. My question is can I now sell the windows 7 disk and would the purchaser be able to use windows 7 and activate it and would they still be able to get a free upgrade to Windows 10?
