    Hey guys!

    So quick question. I have a macbook pro with windows 10 activated in a bootcamp partition. It was an upgrade hardware activation from windows 8.

    Now I'm replacing my macbook for another one with different specs. Can I clone my current bootcamp partition and transfer it to my new mac without any sort of windows activation issues?

    Or as soon as I connect to the internet it will read the different mac hardware and tell me I need to purchase a new license?

    Hi Welcome to Windows Central! Here's my understanding of the W10 upgrade. If you need more help, please join the forum.
    It depends on your license. Any user upgrading from Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 will be issued with a Windows 10 digital entitlement directly linked to your system hardware — namely, your motherboard. While rumors have persisted that Microsoft will try to resell you Windows 10 in the event of an upgrade, it isn’t true.
