  1. Activated windows 10 on new laptop with wrong MSA


    Hi I Bought a new laptop for my wife with windows 10 installed. I activated it with the cortana help. My wife did not have a google account and I activated it on my account, which was a mistake. She now has a googel account . Can I do the setup over with her google account?

    :)

  2. Use MSA to activate Windows 10 on a new laptop

    I've joined the Insider Program since 11/2014. Now, I have a new old laptop. I install Windows 10 on this laptop, but can't activate. Can I use my MSA to activate Windows 10 on this laptop?

    Windows 10 activated, but it does not show in devices Linked Account?

    Thanks for the reply.

    It was upgrade from WIN7 retail.

    Windows 10 was automatically activated when logged in with MSA.

    Under your MSA in a Web browser, there is DEVICES tab.

    You will see all the devices attached to your MSA.

    It shows other attached DEVICES with the same MSA.

    However, if you want to reactivate after motherboard-change, you should be able to see the list of DEVICES attached when you go through ACTIVATION TROUBLSHOOTING.

    My new computer says "The previous windows on the device was NEVER activated." This is wrong.

    As mentioned, the old laptop clearer states, "Windows 10 is activated linked to MSA."

    I do not see any devices listed with the same MSA on Laptop even though I see them in MSA in a web browser.

    Thanks for the help.

    Linking activation to MSA

    I know what a digital license is and I know why I want it linked to my MS account (will be upgrading motherboard in a few months). I prefer a local account for personal reasons. That is not my question. If you read steps 1,2,3 in the following: Linking
    activation
    Microsoft gives very clear instructions on how to do this. The problem is in the tenforums.com website Tenforums
    they list 2 ways to do the same thing but using the method from the Microsoft site, it leads you to believe this will cause your Windows log in to switch to your MSA.

    I want to know which is correct? I do not want to use my MSA to log into Windows on my home PC.
