I am sure this question has been answered before, but as there are 1300 pages on Toolkit please bear with me. I do find it difficult to follow all posts, and would appreciate a simple answer. I know some scoff, but I thought this forum was also meant to help the less able. I have installed 7 Ultimate 32bit on a clean formatted hard disk, and activated with DAZ Loader, then installed 10 Pro from the disk downloaded from MS. Once on-line it automatically activates 10. The reason I say once on-line is that my Ethernet never works after 7, but magically 10 sorts it and is on-line by the time 10 has finished. I like to reinstall 7 and 10 from a clean start, if I suspect any malware or other problems. I know many here disagree, but I have time to do it, and it always end up clean without any crap. My question is - After a year - OCTOBER 2016 or around that date, will I still be able to do the above routine and ends up with a clean 10 activation? If the above will not work after the year,is there a way of retrieving the key MS has used to activate 10, and providing I do not change hardware, will that be an alternative, and still get a clean activation? If I have to go down the Toolkit route after the year, would one of the experts be kind enough to send me a private message pointing to the link that activates 10.
