  1. Trying to reactivate W10 on a new build.


    Okay, so a few weeks ago I used the help of this forum to find out my product type, I have a retail license which should have been digitally licenses to my account.


    After signing in, it's saying: Windows reported that no product key was found on your device. Error code: 0xC004f213


    I've tried running through the troubleshooter and the virtual agent and still no further forward.


    Now it will not let me contact a real agent because 'There was an error connecting you, please try again later or use our virtual agent'


    I'm pretty lost now, what do I do next?


    Thanks

    :)

  3. Windows 10 Product Key reactivation on new hardware

    Hi guys

    Sorry if this question seems repetitive but I need to know about reactivating a copy of W10 in a future system.

    Basically from time to time I would build a new computer for myself, its mostly big changes to both hardware and even the case designs etc.

    After upgrading my hardware I use my genuine retail copy of Windows 8.1 and it gets reactivated on the new system etc.

    If any old hardware is reused to build a different system a new version of Windows will be reinstalled rather than my copy etc.

    If the W10 product keys are stored to my account and say in 2 years I make big changes to my hardware, will I still have my copy of W10 and will it reactivate to a new system or what way does it work?

    Also is there an ISO file of W10 available to download? In case of reinstallations and the like.

    Thanks

    Trying to reactivate W10 on a new build.

    New W10 Builds

    A request on future W10 builds:

    1 -- Leave System Restore turned on if it was on originally

    2 -- Leave the defragmentation options alone. I set mine on daily and with each new W10 edition it sets them to weekly

    3 -- Leave the screen saver setting alone. I use a time setting scroll for screen saver and new editions change it to Windows 10 scroll

    4 -- Let the custom monitor color profile alone. Recent editions have corrected this I think. Sometimes the color profile is still there and loaded
