Windows 10
I just upgraded to Windows 10. There were a bunch of issues so I went back to Windows 7 to see if it solved it. And it did. But I had to replace my motherboard but there are new issues on Windows 7 (related to sound) so I went back to Windows 10. But I don't think it's going to happen bcause it won't have a key. But I do have a stored key in the cloud. Would that work?

    After reinstalling, if you update the system with Windows 10 Anniversary update, then product key is no longer only attached to your hardware and it can also link it to your Microsoft account. In general, associating Win10 license to a Microsoft account is actually an automated process if you are signing into the PC/laptop with this account. But if you are using a local user account, you will need to link the product key with your Microsoft account manually.
