I've acquired a new laptop after the old one died and plan to install the system builder licence of Windows 7 64 that was on the old laptop and then upgrade to 10.
According to the link below I can just do a straight install of 10 and use the 7 licence key but it's not an official MS news so wanted to see if anyone could confirm?
If I can't do the above, I'd like to install the most up to date version of windows 7 sp1 with all the updates integrated - how could I go about this? AFAIK, there are two options:
1) Download a win 7 image from Microsoft (and upgrade)
Does anyone know if this image has all the updates integrated? Presumably it is SP1 but I don't know if the patches are included.
2) Slipstream a win 7 image from my desktop pc (and upgrade)
Am I able to create an image from my desktop 7 and turn into a bootable USB? It's a while since I've done a slipstream image so I can't remember if the image created is hardware and licence agnostic.
Thanks for your help
