    Windows 10 Pro digital license transfer

    Hi,

    I'm trying to transfer my windows 10 pro license to a new pc but it won't work. I've read about every help pages there is on this topic, but none solved my issue, so here I am.

    Here's the situation : I just bought a new laptop and I'm trying to transfer my windows 10 pro license from my old laptop to the new one.

    The old laptop originally came with Windows 10 Home OEM, which I upgraded to Pro using the Microsoft Store Upgrade earlier this year. I've now gone through the steps of linking my Microsoft Account one my old laptop so that I get the "Windows is activated
    with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account" message with my Windows 10 Pro license and I made sure my device appears on my Microsoft account.

    On my new laptop, I connected my Microsoft account, but the license shows as Windows 10 Home. I then ran the "slmgr /upk" command to uninstall the license from the old laptop and I also removed the old laptop from my Microsoft account. Still, if I try the
    Activation troubleshoot on the new laptop, it always stays on the Windows 10 Home license.

    I'm out of ideas, every article I read about transferring a retail Windows 10 Pro digital license said that it was as easy as linking the license to my Microsoft account and then connecting that account on the new PC, but that doesn't work.

    Basically, I want my old laptop to revert to its original Windows 10 Home OEM license and I want to upgrade my new laptop from Windows 10 Home to Pro using my digital license bought on the Microsoft Store.

    Anybody here knows how to fix this mess?

    Thanks

  3. Transferring Windows 10 pro digital license to new system with windows 10 home

    Hey Everyone

    I was using an old laptop of mine which has a retail license of Windows 10 Pro on it and it is activated and the digital license is linked to my Microsoft account.

    I have recently bought a new Microsoft surface Laptop which has a OEM Windows 10 Home on it and as soon as I opened the laptop for the first time and tried to sign in. Now it shows that my windows is activated with Windows 10 Home and digital license linked
    to my account.

    Now I have 2 laptops with both windows 10 home and pro and their digital licenses linked to my Microsoft account. I wanted to transfer my Windows 10 pro license from my old system to my new laptop as I have its digital license linked to my account. But I am
    unable to as I have a digital license of the Home version (OEM) activated on my new Laptop.

    Are there any steps that I can follow in order to transfer my Windows 10 Pro ?? I have verified that it is a retail license.

    Can someone please assist regarding this ??

    Thanks !!

    Windows 10 Pro Digital License Transfer

    Windows 10 Pro digital license transfer

    I have a Windows 10 Pro digital license linked to my Microsoft account on a HP Probook laptop. I had upgraded to this version from a WIndows 7 Ultimate edition.

    Now I have a new laptop with WIndows 10 Home. I want to transfer the Pro license to this new laptop. Once I transfer my data from old laptop to the new one, I would reformat the old one and give it away.

    I can see both laptops in my Microsoft account but I do not see any option to transfer license to the new one.

    I need advice on how to transfer. I tried looking for options under Activate but I only see option to buy a new Pro license
