    How to transfer a Windows 10 Pro Upgrade Licence


    My Dell laptop has died. It was originally supplied with a Windows 8 Home OEM licence, upgraded to Windows 10 Home then I bought a license to upgrade to the Pro version.

    I need to buy a new laptop which will come with a Windows 10 Home licence. Can I reuse the Pro upgrade licence currently linked to the dead laptop for the new laptop and how do I transfer the licence? I can’t remember the T&Cs of the Pro upgrade licence.

    :)

    Windows 10 Pro licence transfer to another PC

    My current desktop PC has Windows 10 Pro installed. It was upgraded from its predecessor, Windows 7 Pro. However, it will be scrapped soon as I'm building a gaming PC now.

    How do I transfer the Windows 10 Pro to my new gaming PC? What are the technical steps as Win 10 doesn't seem to have the licence key?

    Thank you.

    You can transfer the license to another computer though:

    • How to Transfer your Windows 10 License to a New Computer

      btw: this Licence transfer I am trying to do is for my brother who is living in China and I am not sure what kind of Licence this is. So some history. I bought this PC along 4 others from a Recycling depot with the Windows 7 Pro Licences restuck with cellotape
      onto the sides of the cases. I activated all the Licences before the free Windows 10 upgrade ended and all upgraded ok.

      The numbers on this Licence is 548048-001 and the licence is labelled HP.

      So I am now guessing they are all activated a second time on the computers I bought.

      So maybe they will not activate again for my brother.

  4. How to transfer a Windows 10 Pro Upgrade Licence

    Will I be able to transfer my Windows 10 Pro license to another computer?

    My upgrade path is as follows, and I'm trying to determine if I can transfer my Windows 10 Pro licence:

    • Bought PC[1] with Windows 7 Home, and then purchased an upgrade to Windows 8.1 Pro

      during a promotion
    • Bought PC[2] with Windows 8.1 Home, and transferred the Windows 8.1 Pro to the new machine (rolling back PC[1] to the original Windows 7 Home licence)
    • Updated PC[2] to Windows 10 Pro this fall.
    • Bought PC[3] over Boxing day with Windows 10 Home.
    Can I now transfer the Pro licence from PC[2] to PC[3] (rolling back PC[2] to Windows 8.1 Home, and then upgrading to Windows 10 Home?
