    Windows 10 Digital License Transfer


    I'm about to upgrade my HDD to an SSD, but I'm not sure how to go about getting my copy of Windows 10 onto it. I purchased a retail copy of Windows 7 years ago, and used the free upgrade to Windows 10 within the past couple of years. I've since lost the original install disc, and I'm wondering if I can somehow transfer my Digital License for Windows 10 onto this new SSD.


    Is this possible? Or would I have to grab a fresh install from the store?

    :)

  3. Transfer digital license from old PC to New one.

    You would have to first ensure the Digital License is linked to your Microsoft Account. See instructions how to do that. You can then use the Troubleshooter on the new computer after installing Windows 10 to restore the license.


    Please note, if your license was upgraded from a OEM preinstalled Windows 7 or Windows 7 license, it is not transferable.

    Digital License after transfer license to new computer

    Uninstalling a product key does not deactivate the license, there is actually no deactivation method. You would still need to contact support to actually invalidate the license on the old machine, so it can reactivate on the new machine.

    Transferring the license is a step by step process.

    First, you either remove the license from the machine by formatting it.

    Install it on the new machine.

    Contact chat support, then reactivate.

    Where Digital license is handy is when you are still using the machine and reinstall Windows 10 and need to reactivate the license after a significant hardware change, such as a hard disk.
