  1. Win10 pro reactivation after hardware change.


    I recently upgraded the hardware on an active install of windows 10 pro and the system is now giving me error code: 0xC004F211 windows reported that the hardware of your device has changed. This install has already been active for a couple of years with no issues. The real problems start when you realize that this install has been upgraded from 7 to 10 during the free upgrade period. So when I go to use the product key to reactivate windows, this does not actually work because the key I had is for windows 7, not 10.No big problem I think, "I'll just call support."Support makes me open the co

  2. Win10 reactivation after hardware change fails

    Before a recent hardware upgrade (mobo, cpu) I read through this article : Reactivating Windows after a hardware change - Microsoft Support

    My activation status was listed as "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account".

    The article claims you can reactivate using the activation troubleshooter with that status. After the hardware change I attempted to use the activation troubleshooter, and used the "I changed hardware on this device recently" option, but my machine was
    not listed in the options. Strangely, the only machine that was listed was my surface pro, which doesn't show up in my devices when I log into microsoft.com. The device I'm trying to reactivate IS listed in my devices on microsoft.com.

    I tried phone support but the guy went immediately to, "... you need a product key ...", and never asked about my account. This is from an update copy of windows 7 as far as I can remember and I think it's unlikely I'll find the product key.

    The article doesn't mention the possibility that the troubleshooter might not work, which seems like an oversight when the result of a troubleshooter failure could force the user to spend a couple hundred bucks.

    Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    windows 10 reactivation after hardware change

    I just changed motherboards, and When I follow the the steps listed in the "reactivate windows 10 after hardware change" support page, it gives me the message "unable to activate windows" message after I sign in and identify my device,
    with no error code, just a subheader that says "can't activate windows 10 on this device, try again later."
