e systems was a consumer version of Windows 10 which the previous tech installed - no idea where he got it.
Probably came pre-installed on the Dell Computer and not imaged.
Actually it had Windows 7 installed on it but then the co-worker put his version of Windows 10 that I think he got from college on it, and a few other systems. So idk.
Windows 10 will activate on a Windows 7 license. So should be all set from that perspective.
I don't think so.. and it was a fresh install, or at least I know he used the Windows 10 key that he had been provided. That key was also used on about 5 other systems at the time.
You can work around it, but should accept the Win 7 key, too.
