    Windows 10 activation after motherboard replacement.


    i recently had a motherboard failure and had to move my hdd to another pc to get back up and running. I am now seeing an error saying to activate my copy of windows. This was a free upgrade from 7 to 10 on the Microsoft website so I don't have an activation code to put in. How can I resolve this?

    :)

    Hi,



    Thank you for being part of Windows 10 family.



    Sorry to know that you are facing issues with Windows 10.

    There is some confusion about hardware changes on a Computer that will impact their free upgrade activation status. To clarify, the ONLY hardware changes that can negatively impact a customer’s activation status once they have upgrade are changes to the:

    • CPU
    • TPM
    • Motherboard replacement
    If you replaces the Motherboard they may have to re activate but this will not require a purchase of Windows 10.

    You can try to perform a clean install.

    I would suggest you to create a ISO file from the below Microsoft Help Article and try to reinstall Windows 10.

    Download Windows 10

    Hope it helps. Get back to us for further assistance and we will be glad to help.

    Activation of windows key after motherboard replacement.

    Hi Nitin

    Yes, that page does seem to suggest, you can do that, so you should follow the instructions on that page, which should ensure against activation problems after replacing the motherboard, Microsoft do generally provide a one time exemption to change a motherboard
    on an OEM licence . . .
