    Trouble activating Windows after upgrading motherboard and changing hard drives Error code...


    I recently changed motherboards and hard drives. I moved everything from my old hard drive by creating a system image on an external drive, then using the repair installation feature when installing Windows on the new drive. I have been asked to activate Windows, but unfortunately cannot find my product key. I used the "I changed hardware on this device recently" option in the troubleshooter, but it always says the servers are unavailable my internet connection is fine, everything else is working perfectly. I'm not sure what to do, I have a legit version of Windows 10 Pro I believe it was o

    Windows 10 will not activate Error code 0x803F7001

    Possibly there can be the problem with Microsoft activation Server, so your Windows 10 is not activated. In this scenario, you need to wait and verify if it is the issue from Microsoft’s side. But if you are getting error code 0x803f7001, you can also try these steps:

    1. Open Settings app. Then go to Update and security > Activation screen > Change product.
    2. Type your Windows edition product key and click Next.
    3. You’ll get We couldn’t activate Windows error message.
    4. Retry steps 1-3 then type your 25-characters unique product key.
    5. Wait for the process to complete, Windows 10 is activated.
    Hope something helps this problem

    Trouble activating Windows after upgrading motherboard and changing hard drives Error code...

    Can't activate windows 10 after changing motherboard

    Hello,

    I can't activate my windows 10 license after changing my motherboard.

    The license I have is a Windows 7 Pro license, that got changed into a Windows 10 license, when the upgrade was free.

    Steps I took previous to the motherboard change:

    - I linked my Microsoft account with my device, so that my license is registered under my account (it showed up with my mail in the accounts section)

    Now, with the new motherboard built in, I can't activate Windows 10 anymore.

    I tried the support steps listed by the Microsoft helper (Activation -> Click Troubleshoot), but that did not work.

    In the Activitation settings I get the error code: 0xC004F213

    Does anybody know a solution for this, as I haven't found one so far.
