    Can I do this twice (once on each of two computers) using the same USB flash.

    Hi dustywoodworker,

    you can use the created USB stick on multiple computers, it is not restricted to one PC only!. :):):) Make sure that you select the correct version of W10 for the intended computer (Home, Pro etc) when installing, if you had Home on it before, select Home, if you had Pro, select that, you will get the chance to select the version you have a key for during the install process!.:):):)

    See also if doing an install on a PC that previously had W10 on it:

    Thank You. This has been very helpful. I will be doing full backups and images of both computers but for future clarity, I will be doing this using separate storage media.

    My own debate now is external HDs or flash drives.
