Just got a Surface pro and i have 2 windows 10 pro licenses with an official disc. I used one for my main desktop and was planing on doing a vanilla install on the surface pro to eliminate any extra content from the surface. I noticed that the RS2 windows 10 pro already installed on the surface has some settings set. I was wondering if installing windows 10 pro and updating it to RS2 will adapt to the surface and battery settings and what kind of problem i can encounter by doing this.

For a reinstall, you do not need to use a whole new license.
The Surface has its own license, as part of the price when you bought it.

Wow @usaFRET that will do it. Now out of curiosity if i have an official windows disc and i install it on the surface would i need to do any settings changes to get the best performance using the surface? Or the windows on desktop has the same settings as the fresh setting that came in the surface?
