  1. Transferring Windows 10 into new pc


    So I had a windows 10 license in my old pc which was upgraded from windows 8, which I had downloaded from school download site.

    I don't know if my old pc had a digital license and I have disassembled it already, but I assume it should have been, given the circumstances.


    Now I have logged in into my microsoft account and I can see my old pc still in the list of devices. Activation menu gives me the 0xC004F213 error (no product key found) and the link "Add new account" or something which is stated in many tutorials is missing.


    Is there something I can do or do I just have to get a new license?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
