Dear Community,

I've completly rebuild my computer lately including a change of the processor, mainboard, and hard drive so I basicly just the case left. To install Windows 10 Pro on the rebuild machine, I created a bootable USB stick and entered the license key of the previous installation which I extracted using a tool before, which the setup accepted, however once the installation was finished, Windows 10 told me it wasn't able to reactivate.

At this point, I'm pretty stucked since I really don't know how to active the new installation.

Finally, because the source of the Windows 10 license seems to matter, here's a little story about it's lifetime:

1. I had bought a Windows 8 Pro version at a retail store.
2. I used the license on diverse laptops I had in the past, always using the telefone activation the activate the license on the new laptop and disabling it on the old one.
3. Lastly, I build my first own laptop and installed Windows 8.1 on it, transfering the license went really smoothly.
4. I upgraded given laptop from Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10 Pro, no problems.
5. I rebuild the laptop as describen above. Please note that I uninstalled the key on the old laptop using smlgr

Hopefully, one of you can helf, thanks in advance,
VincBreaker
