  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.

    Transfer Windows 10 license to another computer.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Please note that one license key is valid only for one hardware. However you can try the steps mentioned below to check if that helps. Make sure that you have the 25-alpha numeric product key (Retail version). Here are some steps that you can follow:



    Step 1: Uninstall the key from your Mac (Bootcamp). To uninstall the license key, follow the steps mentioned bellow:

    1. Open command prompt (search CMD on start menu) and run it as administrator.
    2. Then type: slmgr /upk
    3. The following command will uninstall the product key from your Bootcamp partition.

    Step 2: Install the product key on new Computer.

    1. Open Run (Windows Key + R) and then type: SLUI 3
    2. You will be prompted to enter the product key.
    3. Please type the product key and try to activate it.

    Step 3: If step 2 does not work, then you will need to install the product key manually and perform phone activation.

    1. Open Command prompt once again and run it administrator.
    2. Then type: slmgr /ipk XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

      Note: replace XXXXX with the product key.
    3. Once you receive a confirmation prompt that the product key has been installed.
    4. Close the Command prompt Window.
    5. Now open Run (Windows Key + R) and type SLUI 4.
    6. Then choose your country and click on Next and follow the on screen instructions.

    Hope this helps.

    Move upgrade from dead computer?

    Hi my name is Ross, I'm an independent advisor. I'd be happy to help with your issue.

    You should be able to reactivate the license on the new PC by following the steps in the guide you reference, ignoring the part about removing the key from the old PC. Usually this would cause an issue on the old PC but since it is dead it will be fine.

    Regards,

    Ross
