    Moving windows 10 retail to another PC


    Hello. I have the following problem. I have windows 10 Retail (i used the slmgr -dli command to check) installed on a PC which I will replace in the near future. I have installed the same version on a new PC in order to use that one instead. I have used the slmgr /upk and slmgr /cpky to remove the license from my old PC so that I can use it on the new one. Unfortunately I was unable to activate my windows 10 on the new PC, getting the error code 0xC004C003. What am I doing wrong?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Moving windows 10 retail to another PC

    Has anyone moved the free windows 10 'Retail version' to another PC successfully?

    I read on a questions and answers thread on Microsofts website that the free Windows 10 becomes the type it was upgraded from (e.g retail version).

    Other threads seem to conclude it still acts like an OEM even in the case of the retail version binding only to the hardware it was first installed on.

    Has anybody managed to reinstall Windows 10 on a new computer upgraded from a retail windows, or did it lock to the First hardware?

    The EULA states "you may transfer the software to another device that belongs to you" so it looks possible ...

    Steps to try:

    • Install windows 7/8.1 retail on machine A
    • Upgrade to windows 10 for free.
    • Uninstall windows completely from machine A
    • Install the same windows 7/8 retail on machine B
    • Upgrade to windows 10 again (here's hoping)

    If someone has already done the first to steps feel free to try see if it works!

    I personally don't want to try the first to steps just in case I can't transfer it after if anyone has done this or has some insight please let me know.
