    Since you say you're going to buy a new machine with Windows 10 installed, I would suggest your favorite search engine. Pre-loaded Windows 10 on OEM machines should start appearing very soon, now.

    I haven't tried that, so I don't know for sure. Perhaps someone who has will chime in here with better information. It's seems that a .vhd should be transferable, but I just can't say for certain.
