    Unable to activate Windows 10 on a new laptop


    Hello!


    I'm trying to transfer my Windows 10 digital license from my old PC to a new laptop and constantly get an error: "Windows reported that no product key was found on your device. Error code: 0xC004F213."


    The version of my desktop Windows 10 Home is 1803, but when I install Windows 10 Home from the Flash Drive on my laptop it shows that the version is 1903. Could it be a reason? Are there any ways to solve this issue?


    Please help.


    Regards.

    :)

    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

  3. Problem with activation on New Windows 10 Laptop

    Hello Necrosis,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    We understand the inconvenience you have experienced.

    • Is that new laptop came with Windows 10 Pre-installed?
    • Is this message appearing since from the purchase?
    • Do you remember any changes to the laptop made this to happen?
    If you bought a new device running Windows 10, it will automatically activate when you connect your device to the Internet. If the activation servers are busy, you might need to wait a while for Windows to activate.

    To check activation status, select the Start

    button,
    then select
    Settings > Update & security > Activation.

    Note

    • In some cases, you might need to enter the Windows 10 product key that came with the device packaging, or included as a card or on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to the device.
