When the xp disk gets to the partition table, you can use the D key to remove all the linux partitions and then you will have your entire disk ready to Triple6, Feb 13, 2007 #3 crjdriver Moderator Joined: Jan 2, 2001 Messages: 34,959 I would make an image backup of your system before you start. I'll switch to the MSDM key and let it activate after install. Don't worry. https://forums.techguy.org/threads/dual-boot-both-oem-vista-and-oem-xp.543567/
VG ^^ Yes. View posting and find answers. I always back up regularly and when upgrading to Win 10 from Win 7 it all went well but found that some of the programs I use did not work with Works fine.
And once your host system gets hacked, you are in the same exact situation I describe. The files are there in C drive and Windows old is there as well. I suggest you take a longer view as to what machines are viable and low-end. You can try to attach the old HDD to new system.
The opton below is the sledgehammer approach and you would need a full copy of Windows Vista, not just recovery media. VG ^^ There is no product key of Windows 10 as such if you upgrade Windows 7/8.1 to Windows 10. I don't want to use the pre-installed Win 8 on the original hard drive because I believe it's compromised.If it sounds like I'm at my wit's end it's because I am. https://www.eightforums.com/installation-setup/19739-before-you-dual-boot-truth-about-ms-oems-linux.html The full Service Pack downloads had the files embedded, but you had to put them in place yourself.

It would be F: drive for Win10, but overall it would also be dual boot, either Win10 or WinXP. Only after that they can perform a clean install of Windows 10 if they want.
It can certainly get you sued, but whether there are any statutory provisions against it depends on the jurisdiction in which you live. Well if someone has done so please let me know. Save and rename the file to "ei.cfg" thus changing its extension.5. The worse case scenario is that you'd have to call Microsoft to explain why you've exceeded the number of allowed activations - which by the way is really easy and quick.
So, for the reasons above (trouble with installations and privacy), I have decided against upgrading to Windows 10. check my blog With SLIC 3.0 and MSDM, there certainly is a complete and human-readable product key in the ACPI table. oembios.bin was a somewhat obfuscated and MS-signed file describing memory locations and copyrighted/trademarked data to look for at those locations. After that select boot repair option from the list.
I'll simply purchase a cheap SSD and run a close OS programme from my sons working Win7 64bit Pro to get round this. My home laptop is one thing, but the work laptop has to be by the book, but it would be nice to be able to use both as I do at I only wish the newer generation would do the same, and if not, will someday realize what kind of world they are living in and will then rise up and fight this content Since I already made an image of the Win7 partition beforehand, is it possible to clean install Windows 10 (securing the free upgrade) and then put the Win7 image on another
The drive and files are there. aronvg Once we upgraded from WIn 7 to Win10 then our licence will also be upgraded for Win 10 on MS server.. Sometimes I get into trouble and need help from experts like you.
Getting hit with a stubborn piece of malware or a rootkit should not be something you are encountering on a personal system very often if ever. Once your previous Windows version is restored, you'll have both OS in your computer: Windows 7/8.1 and Windows 10 and both will remain activated. Let me go through this again:When you install these systems BOOTED to installation media, you get an unacceptable half-assed "solution":Lets say I want to put Win 7 on drive H: and When your hd dies, you simply replace it and restore the image.
I guess it just depends which vendor you use.

Katz Yes, you're correct. If I had to guess, MS will go after KMS next, but that's a slippery slope. Turns out it nulls the product key saved on your hardware so this win10 isn't activated. Dual Boot both OEM Vista and OEM XP?
The app says everything is hunky-dory and you, my lad, will get Pro. This way if there are problems, it is a simple matter to restore the image. That's the price you really have to pay to get the "FREE" Windows 10. It'll not deactivate Windows 7.
When Windows installed, it could be given certificate files with appropriate OEM information and public keys. Thanks!
