    Reuse Windows product key on new installation


    I had purchased Windows 10 Pro product key and used it on my Dell PC. The hardware on this PC failed, and so am not able to deactivate the key. I purchased a new Dell PC and want to use the old key on the new machine. How do I use the key on the new machine? Note: I did connect the old HDD to the new PC and was able to retrieve the product key using ShowKeyPlus the old HDD fails to boot so am not able to load the old Windows installation unfortunately. However, when I try to use this on the new installation, it gives me an error saying it is in use already.

    :)

  2. windows 7 key reuse

    Hey guys,

    I'm selling my 1 year old laptop (laptop 2 in sig), which came with Vista OEM.
    I installed windows 7 on it with a key from MSDN. My best friend(the buyer) will format the laptop before he gives it to his sister, so I wanted to know how I can reuse my key for a new pc in the future.

    I googled a little bit, but I couldn't find a clear answer. Will I have to call Microsoft or something?

    kind regards,
