  1. Transfer windows license from dead pc to new one


    My pc died and I'm building a new one now. I was wondering if I could somehow get a free installation for my new pc since I already had a license once. Thing is I can't access my old pc to uninstall if I have to. I had the license since windows 8 and upgraded to windwos 10 if that matters. I also have a laptop to download the installation and move it to a usb to install it on the new drive. Otherwise I'd have to buy a new license which would be pretty pricey. Thanks for any help

    Transfer Win 10 license to a new PC

    Hello,

    I bought a new PC and read that I can transfer my Windows 10 license to it and I have a few questions.

    #1

    Few years ago I used Win 7 Pro license to install my two PC's.

    When FREE update came I upgraded both of them to Windows 10 x64 PRO.

    Yesterday I assembled a new PC which will replace one of them and I want to transfer the license to it from the one it is replacing.

    The question is if I transfer the activation license will I lose the activation on the second PC or not?

    What are the steps to do the actual license transfer?
