  1. Win 10 License activation PC dead


    I upgraded quite awhile ago to Win 10 for free. I've moved out of state and finally hooked my computer back up to find that the license needs activating (where do I get THAT code now?) and it's constantly running extremely slowwwwwwww. So I chose to turn off wifi just to finish a project I was working on, to find out that it will NOT boot into Windows! After hours and multiple tries to repair, backup, everything and anything to try to save my files, I get nowhere. I've hooked up hardwire, but that doesn't work either. I'm at a loss!!! Other than pull the hard drive and connect somewhere else (don't have the same connections here where we moved to), I don't know what to do. I did find out through this process that Windows must be running from online through the internet and won't now that it's not connected. Please, I need help!! Anyone?

    :)

    How to move Win 7 license over to a new rig?

    AFAIK, OEM licenses will have a Product ID that usually contain "OEM" within it - it can be found under Control Panel > System > Windows Activation (usually).

  3. Transfer Win 10 license to a new PC

    Hello,

    I bought a new PC and read that I can transfer my Windows 10 license to it and I have a few questions.

    #1

    Few years ago I used Win 7 Pro license to install my two PC's.

    When FREE update came I upgraded both of them to Windows 10 x64 PRO.

    Yesterday I assembled a new PC which will replace one of them and I want to transfer the license to it from the one it is replacing.

    The question is if I transfer the activation license will I lose the activation on the second PC or not?

    What are the steps to do the actual license transfer?

    Windows 10 upgrade license

    The interesting question is that: the upgrade takes place before 29 of July. If I upgrade the PC (change the MB), and I transfer the Win 8.1 license to this new PC (cause 8.1 is retail FPP), will I be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free? Or a upgrade license must be bought?
