    Transfer Windows 10 license from old dead computer to new computer?


    I have an old computer that died, which was running Windows 10. I have another computer that my dad gifted to me, but I want to transfer the license from my old computer to the gifted computer. Unfortunately, I don't know where I stored the old Windows Product Key. I've read about topics that confirm it's permitted to transfer Windows 10 licenses, and read others about reactivating a license when a hardware change occurs. My situation seems to be a hybrid of those. So, I'm asking for help to thread the eye of this needle instead.

    :)

  2. Transferring license from a dead computer to a working computer

    Hi everyone

    I would like to ask if i can transfer my old windows 10 license to a working computer. My old computer seems to be dead and all of my data in the hard drive isnt possible for recovery. So if ever possible, i want to transfer my windows license to a working
    computer since that both my hard drive and the motherboard are fried. If so, how can i recover my windows 10 pro license to be able to register in a working computer. I got the reactivation license when i tried to change the motherboard that i brought and
    it works after contacting microsoft support. The license is linked to my account so im wondering if it is possible.

  3. How to transfer windows 10 license to a new computer?

    If its the free upgrade originated from an OEM Windows 7 or Windows 8 preinstalled license, it is still not transferrable, even though it says its retail in the command line using slmgr.vbs /dlv command.

    Only licenses upgraded from a retail Windows 8 or Windows 7 or full Windows 10 license.
