    Error 0x803fa067 when trying to activate Windows 10 Pro after a hardware change


    I have recently upgraded my system due to a faulty motherboard and DIMMs - I reinstalled Windows 10 Pro and to my dismay I can't activate it anymore, eventually getting error 0x803fa067.


    When I try to update my product key after fumbling with the "my hardware has recently changed" option (as per this KB https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/20530) I can't find my new "device" (i.e. the new motherboard) and even if I try to reactivate my currently (dead) listed motherboard, I get a "We can't reactivate Windows on this device, try again later"...


    What gives?

    :)

    Activation/Upgrade Error 0x803fa067

    I tried to Updgrade my windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Pro.
    I tried it with the default key that upgrades Windows 10 to pro without activating it(which is done in the second step).

    The Universal-Key for Windows 10 Pro which is published by Microsoft is VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T. I tried that one but I get the error 0x803fa067.

    I first tried it with the Windows 10 Settings using the Change Product Key Button in the Activation "Tab" And second with the command slmgr.vbs -ipk VK7JG-...
    Both methods werent succesfull.

    What the error originally means is: you don't have a digital licence or a valid Product Key.
    I guess either the newly bought laptop was delivered with a fraudulent license( then microsoft is bluntly lying to me)

    or the error message isn't quite correct. In this case I would go with my second guess

    I am not sure why this Problem occures, so my question is: why do I get the Error 0x803fa067?
    I am aware of the fact that I could reinstall Windows 10 Pro(which is the way I will probably do it) but I am intrigued to know how I could resolve the Problem without spending those extra 15 minutes.

    Activation error 0x803fa067 after hardware upgrade

    I recently upgraded my hardware and am trying to reactivate Windows 10 on a new computer. Getting an 0x803fa067 error.

    I originally purchased a Windows 8 license online on the old computer, which got upgraded to Windows 10 for free. I got the key to display on the old computer and associated it with my Microsoft account, then tried to activate it on the new computer both
    through the Troubleshooter and manually. The error is the same every time.

    I ran slmgr.vbs /dlv and took a screenshot as suggested in a similar thread:

    This seems to suggest the key is indeed genuine and retail, not OEM - correct me if I'm wrong. What can I do?
