    How to transfer a Windows 10 Pro Upgrade Licence


    My Dell laptop has died. It was originally supplied with a Windows 8 Home OEM licence, upgraded to Windows 10 Home then I bought a license to upgrade to the Pro version.

    I need to buy a new laptop which will come with a Windows 10 Home licence. Can I reuse the Pro upgrade licence currently linked to the dead laptop for the new laptop and how do I transfer the licence? I can’t remember the T&Cs of the Pro upgrade licence.

    I'm curious is the new laptop going to be a Dell too? And when you bought the upgrade did you get it from Dell?

    Probably not Dell since I'm not being offered a decent discount for premature failure of the laptop. I bought the upgrade key via a supplier on Amazon and it has worked fine for 2 years.l

    I recently did something similar. You’ll need to call the activation support number. To save time before you call, go to activate and put in your activation code so you’ll get the failure codes to read to the support person. They’ll use those to generate a new activation code for you. If they’re busy you can have them call you back.

    From the link I quoted:

    I have a Dell OEM Windows 10 and I upgraded it to Windows 10 Pro. However, I am planning to buy

    an Alienware 15 R3 laptop (with of course a Windows Home OEM installed).

    Is it possible to transfer my Windows 10 Pro License to the new laptop that I will buy?
    Yes, see the section of the following article how to transfer your Windows 10 Pro Pack:

    How to Find your Windows 10 Product Key

    If you have a full Windows 10 Pro license, just use the Easy Upgrade wizard, then reactivate by telephone.

    Thanks for your help. I bought a new HP ProBook 450 G6 which is supplied with a Pro licence so I no longer have an issue!
