  3. Upgraded from WIN7 to WIN10, WIN10 not activating

    the key is for your old PC, and it did not transfer wen u wiped your PC instead of "upgrading"

    so they key might not be a transferable licence only and up gradable licence give Microsoft a call and tell them that "after advice from Microsoft tech support I wiped my drive and did a
    fresh install of Win10. Now the product key does not work"

    When your window 10 is fully activated you don`t need any key for a clean new install. The registration is stored on MS Activation Servers.

  5. The current computer running Win10 is what is registered, NOT the hard drive. If you sell the current computer, move the hard drive to a new, or different, computer -- it will not reactivate because the hardware hash will be different. To reactivate on the new, or different computer, you would have to do the Upgrade all over again.
