  1. Can't deactivate W10 license; nothing happens with slmgr /all


    Hi guys,

    So long story short... got a new laptop and decided just to swap SSD to migrate more easily and fast. Tried to uninstall/deactivate W10 license in my current (old) laptop, but when using slmgr /dlv, slmgr /upk, slmgr /cpky nothing happened. Even tried slmgr -upk and slmgr.vbs /upk combos and still nothing happens.

    By nothing happens I mean no popup window, no error, etc. and no windows deactivation of course. I have done this before on several occasions successfully, so I'm at a lost right now. I am running cmd as administrator btw...

    I have already swapped the SSD and have the new laptop working and activated and giving me no issues, except same issue that I can't uninstall W10 license key and it troubles me having that old license still installed in the new machine, which I would like to unlink so I can repurpose my old laptop.

    Tanks for any guidance!
