    Win10 Pro Digital License not registering after Hardware Change


    I had recently made hardware changes to my Desktop earlier today, with the upgrade of my Motherboard. I had expected things to run rather smoothly, as I had made similar changes to my computer some time ago with no issues. After my computer had finished booting into windows, I was met with it unactivated. I had attempted to troubleshoot the issue and register my Win10 Pro DL with my machine, only to be met with "We can't reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later." Knowing that I no longer had my original product key, as it was lost along with my older machine's case, I was stumped. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


    Cheers.

  2. Can't reactivate my windows 10 Pro with digital license after motherboard change

    Hi,

    digital license is valid only while hardware is unchanged. When you change hardware you need to activate Windows so new digital license could be registered.

    How did you obtain Windows 7 license? Was Windows preinstalled or bought separately?
     
  3. Uninstall (delete, remove) the Windows 10 digital license from old hardware, after reactivating it on new (similar) hardware, after hardware change

    Hi,

    I recently was able to reactivate my Windows 10 digital license on new (only on similar, same type laptop to laptop) hardware, by linking my Microsoft account. I followed the steps mentoned in

    Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change
    .

    I find that the old hardware, still has an activated digital license of Windows.

    I need to uninstall the digital license from the old hardware, in such a way that it will not activate, on its own, and will not invalidate the digital license on my new hardware, at all.

    Please advice me, as I would like to transfer my digital license to my new hardware, completely, and permanently. I require my old hardware to not be having the digital license, at all, and the digital license to be completely deleted from it.

    Reactivating Windows - Digital license not working??

    I recently made a significant hardware change and wished to bring my Windows 10 Pro license across to my new hardware. I installed Windows 10 Pro but could not get it to activate immediately. I rather naively deleted my previous PC from the list of devices
    registered to my Microsoft account, thinking this would free up the digital license to be used again on my new PC. This had no effect.

    I then found the following article about reactivating after a hardware change:

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/20530

    After seeing this, I knew that I had messed up badly - I was in a rush to get my PC sorted prior to the start of a new week.

    I do not have the original key for my Windows version as I upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro a few years ago and I am unsure what to do now. I have logged into my Microsoft account in Windows on my new PC and it is the same account that was used previously on
    my old machine.

    Looking for suggestions.

    Thanks Win10 Pro Digital License not registering after Hardware Change :)
