  1. Windows activation on fresh install


    I recently upgraded almost all the hardware in my pc including my motherboard. My new motherboard did not recognize my ssd with windows installed as a bootable device so after some troubleshooting I decided to freshly install windows on said ssd. I have a windows 10 pro license linked to my microsoft account. However when I try to run the activation problem-solver, select "I recently made hardware changes" and then select my pc from the list of devices linked to my microsoft account (it's the only device on the list by the way) I get a message saying "Can't activate windows". The abhorrent mess that is "microsoft support" (in my case just some robots repeating the same meaningless lines and hanging up the phone after a while) unsurprisingly couldn't help me so I hope actual humans can help me out a bit here.


    On a sidenote: I translated "I recently made hardware changes" and "Can't activate windows" from another language so they might not be 100% equal to the english version. It should hopefully get the point across.

    :)

    Guide: use Pre-activated Windows 7 OEM License on fresh installation

    I don't get the point of this. I have a lenovo laptop and I just made a fresh install of Windows over it and it was activated. It didn't even ask for a serial. Isn't that the same for every other laptop with SLIC? *Confused Windows activation on fresh install :confused:

    I have an older L412 on which I installed a fresh copy of W7 and I just used the serial on the sticker to install too. No crapware to deal with.
