    Windows 10 wont activate after upgrading CPU & Motherboard


    Hello,


    I had just upgraded my PC yesterday, and now I need to re-active windows.

    I originally had bought a full retail version of Windows 8.1 and was upgraded free to Windows 10. When I go to input my Windows 8.1 code it pops up with error code 0x803f7001 and is saying I don't have a valid digital license or product key.


    Is there any way to fix this?

    :)

    Windows activation fails after upgrading CPU and motherboard

    Hello,

    I get an error message trying to re-confirm Windows 10 activation after upgrading motherboard and CPU. Error message that came was: "Unable to activate Windows. We can't reactivate Windows as our servers aren't available right now. Wait for a few minutes
    or try adding your Microsoft account again. Learn more".

    This is now the second day in a row that it does not work.

    Have you seen the same, and if yes, any suggestions for a fix?

    Background:

    -I was following the process recommended by Microsoft Support for the activation after motherboard and CPU upgrade.

    -Before upgrade I had perfectly activated win 10.

    BR,

    Hi,



    Thank you for bringing up your query on Microsoft Community.



    The only hardware changes that can negatively impact activation status once you upgrade to free version are the changes to the:

    • CPU
    • TPM
    • Motherboard replacement
    The following changes are examples of hardware changes that will NOT impact the activation status:

    • HDD/SSD
    • Video card
    • Adding extra memory
    Let us follow the steps suggested by Andre Da Costa (replied
