    Old Organisation key controlling updates etc even after activating new license.


    Right so, as it says in the title, my old organisation key is still partly activated while controlling updates and stuff but I forgot to remove it before applying a new OEM license. The organisation settings are still applied after activating the new key for Windows and I've tried to reset the license by using the 3 commands: slmgr /upk , slmgr /cpky and slmgr /rearm, but after restarting, it shows that it's still activated with my new key in the activation settings and is still working but in control panels 'System" this shows as not having a key installed. Nothing has worked so far to reset the 'old license' while still having the ' *Some settings are managed by your organisation ' yellow text below my Windows Update panel.


    Thanks, Kai

    :)

  2. Activate new device with old device' product key

    No, you can't do what you are suggesting, because the Windows 10 Pro license you mentioned is pre-loaded on the old machine. OEM licenses as they are called are not transferable. Only if the Windows 10 Pro was a retail store bought license would be able
    to do that. Otherwise, you have to purchase an entirely new full version license for the Windows 10 Home computer you now have.

    Open Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Go to Store

    Click the $99 button the make your purchase the follow the on screen instructions.

  3. Windows 10 License question - New PC and old computer still exists.

    Hi Microsoft Community!

    I'm in the process of assembling a new PC and am going to give the old PC to my younger brother. I want to transfer my existing license to the new computer and if possible "de-license" the old one. These are the particulars:

    • My Windows 10 license was purchased on the Microsoft website and originally activated with a product key.
    • I still have this product key.
    • I have since formatted the PC and after re-installing Windows 10 the activation is now with a digital license.
    • I prefer using local accounts on my PC and thus haven't created a Microsoft account enabled user.

    My question is how to best go about transferring the license? Can I just format the old PC and activate my license on the new PC with the product key? If I do that will I get a problem when my brother installs Windows on the old computer again, since it
    now has a digital license?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Windows 10 Creators Update Still Activates with "old" Windows 7/8 License Keys

    Wait...I upgraded from a legal/activated copy of 7 to 10. The only license key I have for 10 is actually for 7. I don't actually have a license key for 10. I suppose I don't need one since it's tied to my hardware. But...oh never mind. I guess I have no point. *Oops!
