  1. HOW DO I REACTIVATE WINDOWS AFTER TRANSFERRING HARD DRIVE


    I recently took out my hard drive from my Lenovo laptop and transferred it to my gate way because of the bigger screen and now I am unable to activate my digital Windows 10 product key on this device. The product key was pre installed on my Lenovo when I purchased it. Does any one knows how to reactivate windows on the new laptop?

    :)

    Hard drive transfer question

    Depending on the hard drive you have Acronics should work fine. All that is required is that you reactivate windows when you boot up with the new hard drive. Might want to fill out your computer spec so we can help you better.
