    Reactivating Windows - Rebuilt PC, Formatted Drives


    I've just rebuilt my PC with a new Mobo and a few other new pieces. I formatted the old SSD so I wouldn't get any driver issues with the new hardware. When I try activate windows on my 'new' PC, it's telling me I can't . I have a retail license of windows.


    I can see my old PC shown up when it says "Reactivate" but I then hit errors. I've contacted support but the only option is to be called, and my phone keeps dropping the call.


    RESOLVED - Microsoft Agent remoted my PC and used magic and it was super effective.

    :)
