    Windows 10 reactivate after motherboard and CPU change


    I changed the motherboard and CPU on my computer and the digital license reactivation isn't working. I follow all the steps, (settings - update & security - Activation - Troubleshoot - I changed hardware on this device recently) the computer I am trying to activate windows 10 on does not show up as one that I can choose. BUT when I go into my Microsoft account it is there under devices. Why is it not showing up as one I can choose to activate windows 10 on????

    :)

  2. win 10 motherboard change, reactivating windows

    Hi Famie,

    If you are planning to change your motherboard, you will still be able to activate your Windows 10. In Windows 10 version 1607, there is a feature that you can link your Microsoft account to Windows 10 digital license on your device.
    This can help you reactivate Windows using the Activation troubleshooter if you make a significant hardware change later, such as replacing the motherboard.

    That being said, we suggest that you follow the steps given on this article
    to reactivate your Windows 10 after a hardware change.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    reactivating windows after cpu/motherboard change

    Just installed a new cpu and motherboard, went to activate windows gain, but i don't have the product key. Ran the troubleshooter and clicked where it says to if you just changed your hardware and it still won't reactivate it for me. Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks.
