  1. Transfering a licence to my upgraded PC


    Hi,


    I've recently upgraded my motherboard and CPU. I read a bit about the licensing stuff before I upgraded and came to the conclusion that my license is connected to my Microsoft account and that the troubleshoot option will fix my problem. The problem is it didn't and after consulting with the virtual agent, I have to "talk to a real person." So here I am.


    Can anyone help me out here? I don't want to call the toll-free hotline, because it has a different format than we use in this country (it uses 800 XXX XXXX instead of 800 XXX XXX) and I'm afraid I will pay for an international call.


    Thanks in advance,


    Vít Bezouška

    :)

    Windows 10 Pro licence transfer to another PC

    My current desktop PC has Windows 10 Pro installed. It was upgraded from its predecessor, Windows 7 Pro. However, it will be scrapped soon as I'm building a gaming PC now.

    How do I transfer the Windows 10 Pro to my new gaming PC? What are the technical steps as Win 10 doesn't seem to have the licence key?

    Thank you.

  3. W10 licence transfer. What happens if I change/upgrade my PC later on?


    I think anybody determined enough to pirate Windows 10 will do so regardless of the measures implemented by Microsoft.

    If I buy Windows 10 in a shop I'll get a product key. Why should the upgrade be any different? Perhaps Microsoft could think about connecting the licence to your Microsoft account. That would seem a more practical anti-piracy measure to me...


    1. Register with Microsoft for free Windows 10 upgrade.
    2. Provide evidence that you are a current legit Windows 7/8/8.1 user.
    3. Choose a Microsoft account to use with Windows 10.
    4. Download Windows 10 from Microsoft.
    5. Clean install Windows 10 to computer.
    6. Activate via Microsoft account.
    7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 when transferring to new computer.

    I realise there will be people who prefer not to use a Microsoft account but I'd be more than happy with that arrangement.

    W10 licence transfer. What happens if I change/upgrade my PC later on?


    On the contrary, I'd rather not have to think about it at all! It ought to be this simple...


    1. Register with Microsoft for free Windows 10 upgrade.
    2. Provide evidence that you are a current legit Windows 7/8/8.1 user.
    3. Receive a new Windows 10 product key.
    4. Download Windows 10 from Microsoft.
    5. Clean install Windows 10 to computer.
    6. Use new key to activate.
    7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 when transferring to new computer.

    I really don't understand why it needs to be any harder than that!
