    Installing Minecraft on a custom built desktop that does not have a serial number


    I am not able to install Minecraft on an older custom built desktop that does not have a serial number. I also have a store bought laptop and have successfully been able to install Minecraft. I first registered the laptop in my microsoft account as one of my devices. And then installed minecraft.When I try to add the older custom built computer to my devices the interface requires a serial number which I do not have. I have tried to use the commands to see what the bios serial number value is, but that is blank. I was hoping there might be an option like such as Install the device I am current

    :)

  2. Serial number

    The serial number should be on a sticker somewhere on the desktop.

    You can also go into the BIOS to find the serial number.

    This link has the info, it says laptop, but should be the same steps:

  3. Windows 10 serial on OEM


    So I'll summarize steps made...

    1. Saved serial number (taken with Belarc Advisory) from preinstalled (half chinese language) Windows 8.1 (don't know exactly the version, suspect Windows 8.1 with bing) on tablet
    2. Formatted tablet
    3. Tried to make a clean Windows 10 (HOME, HOME N and also PRO, everytime with the same result) install with ISO taken with MediaCreationTool, during install (and also after completing installation) it says that the saved serial is not valid
    4. Tried to reinstall Windows 8.1 (ISO taken with MediaCreationTool again) HOME, it says that the serial is not valid

    So i suspect that the saved serial, is from a WINDOWS 8.1 WITH BING OEM version and this kind of ISO is not accessible/downloadable anywhere (at least I can't find it, any suggestion?)

    Still not tried SHOWKEY with that serial, I am in office now, and the serial is saved on a usb pen at home, will try this evening.

    So I'm stucked but if everything is like I suspect, it's incredible. If I have a tablet/notebook/netbook with Windows 8 preinstalled, it seems that I can update to Windows 10 without problems, but if I want to make a clean Windows 10 install that serial is not valid...

  4. Installing Minecraft on a custom built desktop that does not have a serial number

    After installation, hard drives display same serial number

    Microsoft thinks 2 hard drives on same computer are same hard drive.- Original Title

    I have 4 hard drives in my computer with 1 OS loaded on each one.

    Two Hard Drives have Windows 10 on them.

    One Hard drive is Windows 8 upgraded to Windows 10.

    One Hard drive is Windows 7 upgraded to Windows 10.

    But on my Microsoft Account it says:

    For Windows 7 Upgrade:

    • DESKTOP-5NKAE33
    • MacPro4,1
      • Serial #: H09292S84PD
      • Windows 10 Professional (10.0.10586.420)
    For Windows 8 Upgrade:

    • MacPro
    • MacPro4,1
      • Serial #: H09292S84PD
      • Windows 10 Professional (10.0.10586.420)

    Do you see they have the SAME SERIAL NUMBER? How is this even remotely possible?
