  1. Unable to activate windows after building new pc, regedit, services, and .bat fix all do...


    So as I have researched I know that when you do significant hardware change microsoft will not recognize the new hardware, and you will need to reactivate it. Surface level I tried regedit, services disable, and the popular .bat file for such fixes, most detailed here. (https://windows101tricks.com/remove-activate-windows-10-watermark-permanently/).


    However I fear my problem may be deeper. When I try the troubleshooter on Windows itself, and click the new hardware option, it just says I am unable to do so, no errors codes or anything. I have tried it for the last 3 days thinking it was a Microsoft issue, but it has not been resolved.


    When I booted up my new pc the BIOS would not recognize my HDD with Windows on it, even though it read the HDD as connected (just not bootable). I couldn't figure out what to do so I clicked Windows UEFI mode to boot, and well, it worked. However I now fear I am stuck in some UEFI mode and am unable to switch back to my normal version of Windows.


    Any help or insight is appreciated.

    :)

    Unable to reactivate windows on a new PC

    I had earlier asked a question here on SU.SE. It was suggested to me that I should firstly deactivate windows on older PC and then try to activate windows on the new PC. I have deactivated windows on the older PC by slmgr /upk, but I am unable to activate windows on the new PC.

    I have followed Activation> Troubleshoot> I changed hardware on this device recently> Unable to Activate Windows > See other devices linked to your Microsoft account, I get the following message (attached as image). In the attached image my windows is listed, but mentions as Windows isn't Activated and I do not get the option to select the windows.

    Have I followed a wrong procedure? What should I do next?
