  1. Can't reactivate Windows 10 after Hardware Change


    Changed motherboard and CPU today, had the error message of reactivating Windows 10. I haven't changed my microsoft account, and it's the one I've had for ages signed in on the same PC. It won't activate because it can't find a Windows 10 difital license.

    But when I've looked on my linked devices, it still has my old spec PC on the list. Is there any way of updating that?

    Or just fixing this problem in general.

    :)

    Windows 10 won't reactivate after a hardware change

    I changed a lot of the hardware on my device recently, however I followed the steps on the Microsoft support page to get my computer ready for the hardware change so that I could reactivate Windows 10 after I changed the hardware. However, now it won't reactivate,
    and has the error code 0xC004F025, and when I try to troubleshoot it says "We can't reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later."

    My Windows 10 was a free upgrade from Windows 7.
