  1. Transfer Product Key


    Hi. My laptop is already 6 years old. I would like to change the HDD to SSD. I buy this laptop with original windows 8 already installed and then upgrade it to windows 10 during free windows 10 upgrade (not remember which year).


    Can I uninstall the product key on HDD and then install back the key on the new SSD?

    :)

  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.

    Can I Transfer an OEM Product Key to New PC?


    I built a new PC and want to install windows 8.1. For this I need to buy a product key. I was told that OEM product keys are "married" to the motherboard for life.

    But lets say I install win 8.1 and use an OEM product key yo activate it. And lets say in the future I get rid of the old motherboard and install a new motherboard. Will I be able to transfer the product key to the new motherboard? Or would I need a retail product key to transfer the key to a new PC or motherboard?
