windows 10 help

Recommended Posts

so i have ran into some issues upgrading to windows 10 

i have win 7 ultimate oem and when i  run the update i got some sort of smart boot error and it would revert back to win 7

but my product key said it was no longer activated i tried to reactivated but received a  The Software Licensing Service reported that the license evaluation failed. (Error code: 0xC004E003)

so i reformatted and retried 4 times then gave up and called MS and they told me it was blocked.

my question is can i use a key from one of my non working systems.

Probably not, the keys are linked to the hardware on the pc that windows is on, you might have to make the call to Microsoft and explain the situation.

well it was from a laptop that fried on me 2 years back and i have been using on my desktop with no issues other than no win 10 

windows 7 activates just fine. now i am using windows 7 home premium  and i got the update alert but i am afraid to even try.

I tried contacting microsoft about licensing my windows 10. turns out my motherboard decided to die mid intall and that left me with no usable OS. OH WELL. not that I installed 10 over the Media creation device. So now im trying to decide whether to give in and buy a full copy from the egg or argue with tech support some more.
