Windows Re-activation after adding SSD
#1
Need help with Windows reactivation.

Bought AcePC a couple of days ago. Installed SSD before initial boot. After initial Windows setup (I didn't sign into my Microsoft account during activation, selected offline account), I tried to clone the drive to SSD, but after multiple failed attempts I decided to just reinstall windows with official Microsoft ISO. During reinstall I wasn't asked about product keys since installer saw existing Windows copy. Everything is working great, but now Windows says the product key is used on another computer.

I followed the process for "significant hardware changes", and signed into my Microsoft account, but I don't see this PC there and cannot reactivate it.

Please help.

Thanks!

If you have kept the activated version of Windows that comes with the AK1 installed on the eMMC, then you can recover the activation key. You can use Produkey for example.
Copy this activation key to USB, then enter it on the new installation. Attention, the version of Windows must be identical. A code for Family does not work for a PRO version !!!

The product key is already there. When I was reinstalling Windows it found the previously installed version of Windows, and I assume it used that product key. The issue is that Windows is telling me that the product key is used by another computer. I can't use that same product key. Other solutions?

I decided to try and return to the original state and reinstalled Win 10 Home on the original 32GB drive of the computer. However, windows still says that the license key has been used on another computer. Very strange. As it is, this is not useful for me. I will likely need to return this back to Amazon unless I can figure this out within the next day. Any help would be appreciated.

The amazon seller gave me a new Windows key and that fixed the issue.
