  1. Activate Windows 10 Pro on new laptop after losing my old laptop


    I had an Acer Laptop previously, which I had purchased the $99 upgrade to windows 10 Pro from the microsoft store app on. This laptop was stolen from me at a train station about a month and a half ago, so now that money is down the drain unless I can get that activation on my new ASUS laptop. Is there any way for me to transfer this activation? Or, Microsoft Employees, can you help me get Windows 10 Pro activated on this new laptop?


    Thanks,


    Trevor

    Putting SSD with activated Win 10 pro from an old laptop to a new one

    Hello

    My Lenovo G570 laptop monitor has been damaged beyond repair. I can use the laptop monitor for limited work, so repairing would cost more than a second hand laptop. So I wish to buy a used laptop and to insert my SSD with activated Win 10 pro from the
    old (Lenovo G570) laptop into the new one. To repeat, Win 10pro OS was activated in the old (Lenovo G570) laptop, so I would place the SSD with the activated Win 10 pro from the old to a new laptop.

    My question is:

    After putting my SSD with activated Win 10 pro from the old (Lenovo G570) to a new laptop, would my activated Win 10 pro from the old laptop work in the new laptop? That is, will I lose the valid license for Win 10 pro if
    I swap the Win 10 pro with SSD between the laptops?

    Regards

    Endre

  3. De-Activate windows 10 on old laptop and activate it on new laptop

    Hi,

    I have old laptop with windows 10 home edition by default, few months back I have upgraded it to windows 10 professional through Windows store app and it is working on my old laptop, due to some hardware failure, I have to buy a new laptop. my new laptop
    will also have windows 10 home by default.

    Is there any way to de-activate the windows 10 pro on my old laptop and upgrade and activate my new laptop? I have not received a product key along with this purchase, I have a license associated to my windows account.
