I just ordered a new Lenovo X1 with Windows 10 for work. There will be times I'm required to run Windows, though I prefer to use Linux (Mint, currently) for most day-to-day tasks.
Question: If I create a back-up of the originally-installed copy of Windows 10 through whatever means Lenovo provides (recovery USB drive creation tool of some sort, I'm assuming), can I then re-install that copy of Windows in a VM after I get Mint up & running, or will I run into license issues when I re-home Win10 into a VM? (This might be a Windows forum question, but I'm guessing more folks here have had experience with this.)
I'd rather go this route than dual-boot, so please don't offer that as an answer to this question. (...though I do appreciate the advice!)
