Once you have activated Win10  on an Upgraded PC, that information is stored on the Microsoft Activation Servers.

 

This means that should you later reinstall the SAME VERSION of Win10 on the PC, it will automatically be reactivated by MS once you connect to the Internet.

 

By SAME VERSION, I mean Home vs. Pro -- as the activate codes are different for each of these versions.


Good Luck
