Activation "Windows 10"
The system has problems activating Windows 10. What is its origin?
In 2015, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 users got a great opportunity: to upgradeversion of its operating system up to the tenth anniversary using the original license key. A similar condition was suitable even for new version distributions that were installed by the user on the hard drive.
On the first of August 2016, the possibility of free activation of "dozens" expired. But there are new opportunities. If you upgraded from the seventh and eighth to the 10th version, then the license will be tied not only to the ID number of the PC hardware components, but also to the information of your account in the Microsoft system.
What's good about it? You can cleanly replace the "hardware" on your computer - processor, motherboard, and so on. But at the same time, continue to use the already obtained license on new equipment. To do this, just log in from the computer under the previous Microsoft account. The license, as you remember, is tied to it. It's so simple now!
You have upgraded Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10. To make sure the license is linked to your Microsoft email account, go to Settings. Then move to "Main". Opposite the "Activation" section there should be a corresponding inscription: "The system is activated using a license linked to your Microsoft account".
If you have only used a local account so far, the system will prompt you to add an electronic account to it. A license will be attached to it in the future.
