  1. Changed Hardware now Windows 10 Pro licence blocked by old "Profile"


    Hello,


    I just reinstalled Windows 10 Pro N using my licence key after changing some hardware components, including the HD.


    Now I found out that my licence was blocked by the old hardware, because my Microsoft account now mentioned 2 pc's.


    I then removed the old name of the pc, but I'm still not able to activate windows.


    What do I need to do?


    The Acrtiovation Troubleshooter gives me the following error code:


    0x803FA067


    And the virtual agent sends me here.


    Many thanks in advance,

    :)

    Activating Windows 10 Pro After a Hardware Upgrade!

    I followed all the steps to linking my Windows 10 Pro to my Microsoft account so that I could upgrade my hardware, reinstall Windows 10 Pro, and activate it, but it's not working. I'm signed into my Microsoft account. I tried the activation troubleshooter,
    selecing that I recently changed hardware, etc. Nothing is working. I can see my old computer under my Microsoft account, as well as my new one (with better hardware). I changed the motherboard, ram, and CPU. Any suggestions would be wonderful.

  3. Reactivate Windows after reinstall - no hardware change

    I broke my Windows installation.

    I initially had 10 Home, installed from an official installation USB. At some point, I purchased a Pro licence from the store.

    Now after I broke my installation, I reinstalled using the same USB stick, which allows me to chose between Home and Pro. I chose Pro, knowing I had the licence.

    When it wouldn't activate, I removed the old device from my Microsoft account, thinking it would free up my licence, so I can use it in the new installation.

    I didn't think of clicking on "I recently changed hardware..." link after troubleshooting, before deleting the device, because I didn't actually change my hardware.

    Now there is no way I can think of to reactivate.

    Troubleshooting suggests I buy a licence.

    Clicking on "changed hardware", I am only presented with other devices.

    Is there any way I can recover my license? (I refuse to buy a new one)

    Update: Before reinstalling, I was able to do a full Copy+Paste of all the files in the old old partition. So if there is a file or something I can recover from the old files, I can probably do that.
