  1. Activation on replacemnt pc with old retail win10pro licence fails (08x803fa067)


    Hi,

    I've checked and I have a retail license which allows one move to a new machine. This bombs out with the above error and points me to the shop. However I went out of my to purchase Pro. Shouldn't this be reflected in the Product Key. BTW, I've removed the old device from my ms account and uninstalled it's licence.


    Thanks,

    Ian

    :)

    Activation after PC parts changed - Win10Pro to Win10ProN

    OLD Pc, który wciąż jest listed on my MS account was a custom build that I build with my own hands. There was a full legal Win10Pro. I made a backup pendrive some time ago. After motherboard and gpu faild I take everything out, put new parts
    and was trying to instal win10pro again from that rescue pendrive. However when I was instaling os there was few options to choose from that pendrive. There was win10home, win10homeN, win10pro and win10proN. I googled what is a difrence bitwin win10pro and
    win10proN and everything I get was that to some UE regulations the N version is for UE without MediaPlayer and nothing else. So I decided that should be no problem using Pro or **** for activation purposes. But eventualy it is a problem. I don't want to pay
    for activation if I had full leagal win10Pro no N version. I only ask if there is a way to activate win10proN if I had win10ProwithoutN. Becouse I don't see a reason to buy activation if I had one and only my PC died. If there is no way to activate win10proN
    without buing it again so I instal win10prowithoutN version and then I should get activation do to significant hardware change. I hope becouse I think that charging twice for the same os due to hardware failure isn't ok.

    old hardware licence

    Hi ermurazor69

    Is your Windows 10 licence based on an OEM licence (came pre-installed on a PC) or Retail (purchased separately to a PC)

    If it is a Retail licence, then it will have transfer rights to a new PC, if it is OEM it will not . ..

    Was that Windows 10 licence based on a Retail or OEM Windows 7 licence?

    Activation on replacemnt pc with old retail win10pro licence fails (08x803fa067)

    Moving Win10 (upgrade Win7 Full Retail Licence) to another PC


    Absolutely incorrect. It is totally permissible to reinstall Windows 10 on new pc, if upgraded from a retail licence of Windows 7 (Section 4b - EULA).

    OP - all you need to do is ensure you are using version 1607 on old pc, and logged in with an MS account. Then install 1607 on new pc, and use the activation troubleshooter to transfer the digital licence to new PC, and then delete Windows from old PC.
