    Transferring Windows 10 license to another PC- FAIL


    I purchased a full retail Win 10 pro license and the product was delivered digitally. I did a clean install on the machine I was intending to use, but subsequently decided I did not want to use that machine because of it's age, so I purchased a new computer. I expected that I would be able to transfer the license to the new PC, but when I install it, and try to activate, I get activation error 0xC004C003. I've called Microsoft support several time, which has not fixed it. I removed the license from the original machine with slmgr.

    Can anyone tell me how t his is supposed to work.

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade license

    The interesting question is that: the upgrade takes place before 29 of July. If I upgrade the PC (change the MB), and I transfer the Win 8.1 license to this new PC (cause 8.1 is retail FPP), will I be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free? Or a upgrade license must be bought?

    Windows 10 license transfer

    Thanks Andre.

    i bought the license. My laptop was originally loaded with win 7 and was upgraded free couple of months.

    in this case, if i understand you correctly, i can transfer with below steps. Right.?

    let me buy my new laptop and try below.

    and to my question do you have an update.

    does OS upgrades if my activation key is changed.

    thanks
