    Error 0xC004F213

    My windows 10 pro is retail version my Windows 10 is free upgrade from Windows 7 and Windows 7 not pre-install version and My Microsoft account is linked to digital licence, but when I try to reactive Windows after hardware changeinclude motherboard and CPU. I open activation troubleshooting and click "I recently changed hardware on this device." but there is only show my old PC not my currently one . I click active and unable to active Windows I use same Microsoft account. I get message that i cannot activate this new system RIGHT NOW, with no indication when I can activate it.


    Windows 10 is upgraded Windows 7 retail version, however I do not have CD key anymore, as support centre was confirming that my digital licence is linked.

    I would appreciate help in this matter.

    :)

    From http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/why-activate-windows-10

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      Windows activation after significant HW upgrade [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
