  1. Transfer of product key


    My windows computer has crashed. I have decide to buy a new one without OS hoping to use the same product key I had already purchased for the crashed PC. Windows states I must first deactivate the first computer in order to transfer the product key. How do I do that if the computer is fried?

    :)

    Transfer of product key

    Product Key Transfer

    I have Windows 7 OEM Home Basic Genuine Product Key on the bottom of my laptop, and I've upgraded it to Windows 10 Home. When I search for the product key using product key finder, I saw that is "Full-Packaged Product" media. That I know, the "Full-Packaged
    Product" media can be transfer to another machine (computer). How about I transfer my own product key (Windows 10) from laptop to my desktop computer, and I completely uninstalled my Windows OS on laptop and changed it to other OS (such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint,
    etc.). Is this completely legal?

    Need your advice.

    Thanks.
