  2. Transfer of product key

    Hello.

    Whoever told you that you need to "deactivate" is wrong. Go here for actual steps on transfering the product key over:

    Simply put, you just need to transfer the license over. you do not need to deactivate first.

    For more info, i suggest calling MS support about activation issues.

  3. Regarding Transfer of Upgrade Product Key

    Backstory:

    1. I purchased a laptop that came with an OEM version of Windows 10 Home
    2. I purchased a retail Windows 10 Pro product key and upgraded the laptop.
    Question:

    1. I have purchased a new laptop with an OEM version of Windows 10 home installed
    2. I would like to transfer the Windows 10 Pro retail product key to the new laptop so I can upgrade the new laptop.
    3. Also, I would like to restore the OEM version of Windows 10 back onto the old laptop.
    4. Is there a way to do this.
