  1. Need help reactivate Windows 10 after a hardware change


    Hello,


    I've just made a significant hardware change recently. I changed almost everything in my PC except the GPU and storage devices.

    I tried to reactivate Windows 10 but got stuck at the "select device" step.

    Windows doesn't include my "new" PC in the list.


    This is my devices list on Microsoft website:

    This is the devices list in "Reactivate" screen:


    Need help reactivate Windows 10 after a hardware change 9ddeac3d-547d-450e-b455-c43fb237c2ec?upload=true.jpg

    Did i change too many parts and get "disqualified" to re-use my Windows license?

    If not, is there anything I can do to reactive my Windows?

    :)
