    want to throw away my ssd but not sure if i can activate with a digital license.


    greetings. Im planing to discard my ssd drive but im not sure if i can activate windows using digital license, because when I look at the activation page it just says "windows is activated" instead of "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account." im using windows 10 pro 212h O.S build 19044.2006the questions are:- how to confirm that i own a digital license - if the digital license is not linked to my microsoft account, how can i link it?thank you

    :)

    Activating Windows 10 with a digital license from a new SSD and new motherboard

    Hi,

    I upgraded from windows 7 to windows 10 and my windows settings say I have a digital license. I recently bought a new motherboard and new SSD. I cloned the OS from my old SSD to my new SSD and my PC can boot and I can log in, however it tells me that I need
    to activate windows. I was under the assumption that the digital license I had would follow my account, so when I would log in it would activate windows but this doesn't seem to be the case.

    Do I need to deactivate the digital license on the previous motherboard/SSD first before I can reactivate on my new hardware? That is the only other explanation I could think of as to why this isn't working, but I don't want to deactivate my digital license
    on my old hardware only to have this issue persist on my current new hardware. Could I get confirmation? And if so, can I also get steps on how to properly dissociate my digital license from the old hardware before I can use it for my new hardware?

    Thanks,

    Jonathan

  3. Activating a Windows 10 digital license - SATA drive to SSD

    Hello, I'm in the process of migrating from a standard SATA drive to an SSD. I'll being using the SSD as my primary boot drive. And I'm wanting to install a fresh copy of Win10.

    I'm pretty certain I upgraded from Win7 to Win10 and don't believe I have a product key - just the digital license.

    Is it possible to download a copy of Win10 and somehow activate it with my current license? If so, can someone outline the steps to take?

    If this is not possible, I guess I'll be forced to buy a copy of Win10.

    Thanks,

    Andy
