    Moving license from Win7 BOX to new computer with fresh Win10


    Hi,

    Soon I want buy a new PC and install fresh Win 10. On old computer I have installed Win 10 which is from upgrade from Win 8 which is from upgrade from Win 7 Ultimate BOX.

    1. How to deactivate license on old PC? With below command?

    slmgr /upk

    2. Can I use key from Win 7 BOX during installation of Win 10 on my new PC? Or should I activate this Windows later? If later will this work for my case?


    slmgr -ipk your-new-product-key


    3. Is this true that moving license to new PC is possible only once?


    Thank you for help.

    :)

    Transfering Win10 digital license to a new computer?

    Hello!

    How does one transfer a digital license of Win 10 from one computer to another?

    I have found online how to transfer from one computer to another a boxed version of Win10, found information that it's not possible to transfer license if Win10 is upgraded from Win7, but can't seem to find what to do in case of digital licenses.

    Thank you!

    Win7 Gateway Computer fails Win10 Upgrade

    I am covered under the late Win10 upgrade ending Dec 2017.

    I attempted 6 upgrades to Win10 -- all failing - each time trying to address a potential concern.

    Win10 Upgrade says that the computer is fully capable for the upgrade and begins downloading the files then moving in the installing process.

    The process totally locks up at 75% at which time a reset is applied. The computer restarts and continues to 81% thereby totally locking up again.

    The reset - restart at this point goes into Win7 Home recover mode.

    One of my attempts was to totally load a fresh version of Win7 from my installation disk and making sure the latest Win7 drivers were being used.

    A internet search suggested that this model of Gateway computer was not able to be upgraded to Win10 yet the Win10 upgrade process stated that all was well.

    Please note - no anti-virus - no programs - just a fresh Win7 installation.

    I did find some Win8 Gateway drivers available but did not load them as I did not know if that would break the Win7 OS.

    After one of the Win7 recovery process completed, Windows reported the upgrade failed do to error C1900101-4000D. A Internet search of the error code states it is do to a driver related issue - hence my concentration on drivers.

    I would like to upgrade this computer but I have no idea as how to proceed.

    Can some direction be provided.

    Thanks
