    Replace key to Sysprep and move Bootcamp to my new MacBook Pro?


    I upgraded my Bootcamp version of Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 10 on my MacBook Air. The screen is cracked on my MacBook Air so I am trying to move Bootcamp to a new MacBook Pro. When I run Sysprep I am getting an error message that says Sysprep cannot run on an upgraded version of Windows.

    My question is: If I purchase new Windows 10 Pro operating system, can I replace the upgraded Windows 10 product key with the new key and will it change the upgrade to a new installation of Windows 10. If it will do this, I can then run Sysprep and move Bootcamp to my new MacBook Pro.

    Thanks for your help!

    :)

    Parallels 11 to Bootcamp Win 10 activation

    Installed a licensed copy of Win 7 pro 64 bit under Parallels 11 at my new MacBook. Upgrade to Win 10 64 bit Pro with no problem with activation. Found out that 1 of my USB Token is not function properly and decided to switch to Bootcamp as both tech at
    Microsoft and Parallels unable to resolve the issue.

    Created a bootable Win 10 USB and proceed with Bootcamp installation (Unable to use Win 7 as the latest MacBook Bootcamp require Win 8 and above). Installed Win 10 without entering product key and after installation it did detect my product key for Win 10
    from previous installation under Parallels 11. My USB Token now function correctly. However, under Bootcamp my Win 10 is not activated even though it detected my product key.

    Called Microsoft and they suggest me to get a new copy of Win 10. That is not helpful at all. Unable to install Win 7 under Bootcamp to re-upgrade again. Is there any other way to resolve this?

    Hi BikerDude, welcome to the Ten Forums.

    There's a really fast and simple workaround to get Sysprep to work on an upgraded Windows. See this tutorial: Users Folder - Move Location in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums, scroll down to end of it to find a section called UPGRADE. In that section you'll find Step 2. Edit Registry which tells you exactly what to do.

    You may have a problem with activation. It might work just entering your 7 key in 10 but if it says "key in use" then to get activation on your new MBP you'll need to install 7 ultimate again, activate it and upgrade it to 10. Once 10 is activated you have your digital entitlement and you can then wipe the install and replace it with the syspreped version.
