    I swapped my m.2 OS drive from my current desktop to an older system that my windows account I own a genuine copy of windows 10 home bought from the Microsoft store was previously activated on for testing as it is being repurposed. Now that I've put it back in my current desktop, it says windows is unactivated. When I go to activation settings and click troubleshoot it says "it looks like hardware on this device has changed", then I click "I changed hardware recently" and it says that it can't find any devices linked to my account matching my current device, and when I click see other devices the motherboard that i just swapped my os to and back shows up as a linked pc.

    :)

  2. SSD with Win 10 computer swap

    I received a used computer from my cousin after the MB on one of mine failed. His was faster so I pulled the drive from MY failed computer and put it in what was previously his computer. I had been using his old computer as is for a couple months before
    I did this. After the swap my HD from my work computer failed, so I took the SSD from his old computer with Win10 and some programs installed and put it into my work computer, but it wont boot. I tried using a repair disk and what happens no matter which repair
    method I try is that it says the SSD is locked and I cant do anthing. Any suggestions on how to use this SSD and unlock it , or at the very least retrieve the activation code from Win10 so I can do a clean install?

  3. Windows 10 self deactivated

    I just swapped to new hardware and I used my old hardrive and just reformatted it. My windows for some reason decided to deactivate it's self. I've tried all the options available on my pc and nothing is working. Anyone have any advice on doing something
    for this or am I better off getting a cracked version of window? I'm not paying for a new version again.
