Windows 10: Replacing hardware/activation?

    Replacing hardware/activation?


    The short story is motherboards Asrock AliveNF6G-VSTA ddr2 and Gigabyte GA 790X-UD3 ddr2 simply aren't supported and there are definitely win10 failures with chipset compatibility on these two boards.

    I've activated both boards through MS free win 10 upgrade ( both have been clean installed also now, win 7 restore is gone) but now I need to replace the boards so how do I do this with out having to buy another win10 disc, do I reinstall win7 and start over on the new boards, is it possible to start win 10 upgrade over before the July 30 2016 deadline?

    Replace the boards, see what happens. If problems contact Microsoft and see if they will allow you to activate. Since you are replacing the boards due to compatibility problems with Windows 10, I believe they will.
