  1. Installing Windows 10 on HP machines activates successfully with digital license?


    Hi


    In our company we have multiple HP laptops and desktops running Windows 7 Professional.


    When installing Windows 10 on these machines, they activate successfully with a digital license. We did not use any additional product keys.


    If I go to activation under settings, it states activated with a digital license. Can I view this as a valid legal license for my company without any concerns?


    I called Microsoft and according to the call center agent, it is valid and legal.


    I would really like to get an official answer on black and white for example an email. The agent could not provide it.


    I am trying chat support, but can't seem to get further than the virtual assistant. I need a real answer from a real person.


    Any advice on how I can get this?


    Thanks


    Emile

    :)

  2. Windows 10 activation with a digital license

    I have a Windows 10 image that I use to install windows 10 on machines that already have digital license, but for some reason I can't seem to be able activating the new installs from that image on those machines! I followed some of the troubleshooting steps

    Thanks

  3. Activate windows 10 after a clean install through digital license.

    Windows 10 Digital License

    When you upgraded from a previous version of Windows or receive a new computer preinstalled with Windows 10, what happened is the hardware (your PC) will get a digital entitlement, where a unique signature of the computer will be stored on Microsoft
    Activation Servers. The Windows 7 or Windows 8 genuine license you were previously running will be exchanged for a diagnostics key.

    Anytime you need to reinstall Windows 10 on that machine, just proceed to reinstall Windows 10. It will automatically reactivate. You will prompted to enter a product key a couple times through the installation, click I don't have
    a key and Do this later.

    There is no need to know or get a new key, but if you have issues with Digital Licensing or the Activation Troubleshooter, you can utilize an existing Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 product key you already own to
    reactivate if necessary. or use the reset function in Windows 10.

    Reinstall by Performing a Direct Clean Install

    If Windows 10 was already installed and activated on your system, just proceed to perform a direct clean install as described in the following articles.

  4. Installing Windows 10 on HP machines activates successfully with digital license?

    digital license requirement

    Hello William,

    Digital license or Digital entitlement can be obtained when a Windows device has been upgraded from an old version to the latest one. If you have an old Windows 7 device that was upgraded to Windows 10, the product key will be converted to a Digital license
    which is stored on our Activation servers. Digital license activation will not prompt for a product key during installation.

    Here are some scenarios that will require a Digital license activation:

    • Upgrading to Windows 10 for free from an eligible device running a genuine copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.
    • Buying genuine Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store and successfully activated Windows 10.
    • Buying a Windows 10 Pro upgrade from the Microsoft Store and successfully activated Windows 10.
    • Being a Windows Insider and upgrading to the newest Windows 10 Insider Preview build on an eligible device that was running an activated earlier version of Windows and Windows 10 Preview.

    For more information about Digital license, kindly refer to this support article.

    Hope this information helps. Let us know if you any other concerns.
