  1. Is the CPU the same vendor Intel->Intel

    If so no problems

    If it’s Intel->AMD…. well you’re gonna probably just want to go with fresh installs.

  2. Running Windows client OS in a VM on a server requires Windows 10 Enterprise with SA or a Windows VDA subscription. If you were properly licensed and activated this situation would not have come up at all.
