    Hi,

    I am currently on win8.1 (retail) and looking forward to upgrade to win10 before to move to a new HDD, as the current one seems to have a bad sector and its not possible to mirror it to a new one.

    What I understand is that I will receive a new activation key after the win10 upgrade, will I be able then to make a clean install on the second HDD? Will I be able to do this via a downloadable iso from MS?

    thx in advance!
    chris
