    Upgrading motherboard on a Pre-Built PC

    I am about to upgrade my motherboard on a Pre-Built PC that has had Windows 10 installed on it ever since I bought it. Will there be any issues with that since the PC came with a Windows 10 disc and product key on the side of the case. I have heard of
    people having to buy new product keys and I was hoping I could avoid that.

    The 9th gen processors that are currently available is still the P0 stepping and will eventually be replaced with the new R0 stepping processors.

    Here are the screenshots I took from Gigabyte's website

    Gigabyte redacted the new R0 processors from the list a day later.

    Hi,



    Thank you for bringing up your query on Microsoft Community.



    The only hardware changes that can negatively impact activation status once you upgrade to free version are the changes to the:

    • CPU
    • TPM
    • Motherboard replacement
    The following changes are examples of hardware changes that will NOT impact the activation status:

    • HDD/SSD
    • Video card
    • Adding extra memory
    Let us follow the steps suggested by Andre Da Costa (replied
