    Using License Key from a Formatted Laptop


    Hi, I've finished building a desktop and will sell my laptop. If I completely format my laptop that has my windows 10 on it, can I use that laptop's windows 10 license key to activate windows 10 on my desktop?

    How To Format A Write Protected Flash Memory ?

    ¿You already tried this one?...

    Run CMD


    1. diskpart
    2. list disk

    Then in the 3º step, put the correct number of disk in the list for the usb flash (if it's listed in disk 3, then you'll have to write select disk 3).

    2. select disk #
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    with that commands you will format the flash drive in fat32, if you have a large drive you can select also "format fs=ntfs" in step 7.

    good luck!

    Retail Vista license format on Toshiba laptop, possible OEM.

    A friends Toshiba laptop just got hosed and he never made a system backup of his factory OS/programs. I own Vista Ultimate 32/64 and want to format and fresh install his OS with my disk. I am not sure at this time if his COA is OEM or what. Will I be able to format with my disk on his lappy and have it accept his license?
