    Upgraded PC but Windows 10 won't activate


    After upgrading my PC, I go to the Windows activation app, click "troubleshoot", then click "I changed my hardware on this device recently".


    After selecting my device and clicking activate I always get back "We can’t reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later."


    I have tried many times over a few days and it never works.


    How can I activate Windows?

    :)

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    From http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/why-activate-windows-10

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      Upgraded PC but Windows 10 won't activate [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
