    Hi all, I'm trying to reactivate my Windows 10 after replacing my motherboard using a license that's linked to my MS account. When I select my available license and press Activate I get an error message telling me to try again later.


    In the past when I've had issues reactivating Windows I've been able to get support through live chat however all there is now is the Get Help app which only directs me to get a phone call or post here in the forum.


    Please help me to reactivate my copy of Windows, thanks!

    :)

  2. Motherboard change unable to reactivate Windows 10 Pro -


    I have searched this topic and everything seems to be almost a year old. This is a homebuilt machine circa 2015. It started with an ASUS FM2+ motherboard with an AMD A5600K processor. It was Windows 7 Pro, upgraded to Windows 8.1 Pro then to Windows 10 Pro.
    Saturday the motherboard died. An exact replacement could not be located so a Gigabyte card was installed. No changes to the hard drives. Booted the machine and Windows automatically started and then did a "revert" then installed the latest updates. C Drive was in the red so I deleted all of the old install files using Windows Clean-up. Went to reactivate, checked the significant hardware change and entered my MS account information - The computer (none of my computers) were listed and now it is telling me that I have to spend $200 to buy a copy of Windows 10 Pro.
    Have not yet called Customer Support as the computer is at home and I work during the day -
    I do have a disk image or two that may be a year old -

    Suggestions - should I just shell out the $200 and move on

    TIA
