  1. Windows 10 license transfer failed


    I had a Windows 10 Pro license installed on my current laptop. I bought a new laptop and tried to transfer the windows license to my new laptop, because I want to give away my old laptop and keep the license. I have a Retail windows license which should allow transfer from one computer to another.

    I used this article to do the transfer: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-transfer-windows-10-license-new-computer-or-hard-drive.

    Executed these commands on my current laptop:

    [COLOR=rgba16, 16, 16, 1]slmgr /upk[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgba16, 16, 16, 1]slmgr /cpky
    [/COLOR]
    This removed the license successfully from my current laptop.

    When I try to enter the same windows key to my new laptop, with following command: [COLOR=rgba16, 16, 16, 1]slmgr /ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx[/COLOR] I get this message:
    Windows 10 license transfer failed 408806f7-091a-4d78-8552-c8dbfe4165eb?upload=true.jpg When I try to re-enter the same product key to my current laptop the one I removed the license from, I get the same error message. It seems like the product key was invalidated.

    Additional info: When I go to the Activate windows page on my current laptop it seems my windows is still activated:
    Windows 10 license transfer failed 2d962035-9986-4e1a-9d18-5b373896077c?upload=true.jpg
    ..but then I open System from Control panel is displays as not activated, which makes sense, because I removed the license.

    If anyone had some similar issues please share. Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 license transfer

    Thanks Andre.

    i bought the license. My laptop was originally loaded with win 7 and was upgraded free couple of months.

    in this case, if i understand you correctly, i can transfer with below steps. Right.?

    let me buy my new laptop and try below.

    and to my question do you have an update.

    does OS upgrades if my activation key is changed.

    thanks

    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?
