I want to replace my old laptop motherboard but am concerned about the Windows 10 that will not be on the new board. Do I have to purchase a new software OS?
It's possible, you get different specs in a model range and dropping a higher specced MB into the same lower specced chassis is at times doable. My old nx6110 would accomodate MBs from higher specced nx6xxx & nc6xxx models. Got to be careful in picking the replacement board though and it's not financially viable to buy new either, would have to source from ebay etc. Might as well just buy another laptop.Upgrade latop motherboard
EBay keys seem to all be msdn keys. Check the classifieds on Mybb there are some legit sellers that look to sell Win 10 Pro for around R250, use a pid checker after installing to make sure it's a oem or retail key.
Bought recently from these guys. Can vouch. Got my key in ~20 minutes.
