    Help windows activation, new hardware


    I just moved a hard drive over to a completely new computer as I am getting rid of the old one from age. I have run through the trouble shoot for new hardware to no avail. the support chat thing didn't help and the phone number it gave me at the end did not work.


    I have a windows 10 pro upgrade from a windows 7 hard copy I got from college in 2009.


    any help would be great. still have the hardware from the old computer if that can help any.

    :)

    • Activation has failed, (Error Code: 0xC004C003) when I try to troubleshoot:

    so I looked at most of the guides and from the looks of it, I would have to rebuild the old computer to move remove the windows key from it to move to the new one?

    As for legitimate copy of windows 7, I would assume it is. I have the disk infront of me with the product key on it still. But from what little bit of the key is shown on the activation page in the settings, windows 10 must have generated a new key.

    when I do the trouble shoot for the new hardware, it does list my old motherboard as the only option but does not work.
