  1. Windows 10 won't reactivate after hardware upgrade


    I upgraded my mobo and CPU, but after moving my SSD to the new PC it won't reactivate Windows 10. I keep going to Settings to reactivate but it keeps saying "We can’t reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later. " It's said that for 4 days so I don't think trying again later is going to help.

    :)

    Reactivating Windows 10 after hardware upgrade

    I recently did some major hardware upgrades on my computer, including replacing the motherboard. A week before I did this I linked my digital license to my microsoft account so I could reactivate windows after the upgrade, following the steps on this page:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/20530/windows-10-reactivating-after-hardware-change

    After following the second set of steps I'm given this error:

    "We can’t find any devices linked to your Microsoft account that can be used for reactivating the device you’re using right now. Make sure you’re signed in with the same Microsoft account you linked to the Windows 10 digital license on this device or try
    again later."

    Clicking "See other devices" shows me nothing except:

    "We can’t reactivate Windows from these devices.



    If you're not seeing your current device, make sure you're signed in with the same Microsoft account you linked to the Windows 10 digital license on this device. "

    I'm signed in on this computer as an admin with my Microsoft account. Is there anything else I can try to reactivate Windows 10?
