    Hey guys, I am replacing some of my hardware, specifically the CPU, RAM, and the motherboard.


    Is there a way for me to transfer my current Windows registration to my 'new' PC?


    Thank you in advance.

  2. Digital license won't reactivate on new hardware (motherboard, cpu ram)

    Hello,

    I have a digital license of Windows 10 that is linked to my Windows account. I've just replaced my motherboard, cpu and ram and whenever I attempt to reactivate my license the activation troubleshoot says "Unable to activate Windows, We can't reactivate Windows
    on this device, Try again later.

    Prior to changing my hardware I double checked my digital license, The activation said "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account"

    If I run 'winver' It also lists the produced is licensed to my Microsoft account.

    According to this article below, All I should have to do is goto the activation troubleshooter and everything should work.

    What are my next steps?

    Thanks.

    Transfer Windows 10 to new motherboard

    Hi,

    I decided to upgrade my CPU and motherboard. I was running Windows 10 pre-installed when I bought the PC. Now I want to transfer it to my new motherboard. How do I do this? Unfortunately, I did not create a back-up prior to dis-assembling my old PC. Good
    news is that Windows 10 is recognised in my MS account
