Transfering windows 10 license to another computer?

by shikhasinghkte In reply to Transfering windows 10 li ...

There are only two cases in which you may by contract (when you open this package … etc.). Those are when you buy a retail Windows package from a store NOT as part of the computer. In other words, when you buy a loose Windows package by itself. It must say Windows Retail. This will not be the one supplied with a new computer. Some retailers will sell OEM or system builder packages as if they were retail. Those are tied to the first hardware they are installed on.

The second way is to get a copy with the MSDN or Microsoft Developer Network subscription. This is a fairly expensive solution. You get a copy of all the current operating systems, and all other Microsoft products for the test, local install, and personal use. It’s for Developers and engineers to use. With this, you can move the license from hardware to hardware.

What you will want to buy is a Windows 10 Retail, in Home or Professional. You can look up the differences here. Compare Windows 10 Home vs Pro

I hope this gives you a useful answer, Richard.
