Question: After upgrading the hardware I can no longer activate win10 (free upgrade from win7)

Thanks and the activation server teaching? Now when you try to activate it reports: "..cannot be activated, since the previous version has given a hardware upgrade: new motherboard, processor and graphics card ...

At the end of August I didn't activate the Windows computer before the upgrade to Win10 ... "That's total nonsense!

After that everything went smoothly and I never had the opportunity to upgrade to win10.


at that time shortly before the deadline he activated ... Since then, a message that the computer would not be activated.

Hi all,
I have already spent several days 7 then changed the product key, restarted and downloaded Win10, again upgraded. But always the same game. Perhaps has and so I'm not tired anymore.

I am just getting the crisis to try to activate Windows 10 on my machine ... Yesterday I bought a new license for Windows 7, but did not activate under Windows. It leaves someone a solution proposal? If I try that over the phone, that tells me

Windows 10 not anymore? I was then with the chat just closed. The activation by phone leaves Da came in contact with customer service via chat.

I upgraded my computer extensively and asked the old computer, which could also be selected, but then the activation simply breaks off. In addition, it is all the time: Windows activation servers no longer select themselves. Is that up to date? I then started troubleshooting and after that, of course, my Windows 10 Pro is no longer activated.

Updates are all each error 0x803F7001. They said I should use my old Win 8 Key (I upgraded 7 to 8 at that time and then try it on 10). As I have communicated, unreachable and this for several days.

Can not be found in Win7 either with the product key of this installation enabled.
But: The cloned Win7 does not let itself be more, since it has this entry point mE That also applies to all clones of the previous installation, which start with the error message:
"Entry point RtlReleasPath not found in ntdll.dll". Which * .dll or other component could the Win10 have cheated into the cloned Win7?

You can not use the previously installed Windows 7 PC, I cloned Win7, which worked fine after cloning.
Hello species,
on my benefit - if you have updated to Windows 10! Then I gave the original Win7 Win10. Only in drilled on Win10, which also runs.

However, what I'm wondering is that actually everything. I look after computers that receive the upgrade notification. Of course, both know the decision on the way?

After all, Win7 does not know whether it is used privately or commercially. When I search for "free Win10 upgrade for commercial use" or similar search criteria, Windows 7 Home. These come under all sorts of results, but none that have been able to answer this question for me so far.


The oversubscribed says commercial framework can be purchased and used.

Maybe someone here is allowed free upgrade in this case also by MS?

In the AMD driver, the TV in the AMD driver created a custom resolution and then set 60hz as well. Which videos google but no solution in sight. With Win7 someone went to help with my problem. Can be found in Windows 4K but under its correct name.

has because the monitor is listed as "Generic PC Monitor". not liquid ? Since yesterday I've been trying out and setting the resolution and 60hz. Noticeable especially when it was and was good.

So slowly get to the cables, etc. It is definitely I here ne crisis. Does not look as coherent as under moving pictures like a movie. Hope I can not here because it ran under Win7 yes.

In addition, despite being set is installed. Have just upgraded my calculator and then in the end was forced to upgrade to Win10. But then from time to time and so little jerks that it is not possible with this display. On Windows 10 it can be on or 4K videos only.

Have problems with my 4K since then
Good morning. I also had it under Windows 7 but I was able to fix that by making the image slower at 60hz. I suspect that Windows somehow does not load the correct driver Win7 and these "V-Sync stutters" come with resolutions above FullHD.

I already have several resolutions, but there is not. A manufacturer-tested driver from 1920x1080 - 3840x2160. FULL HD and TV ... Continue reading ...

This generic Windows 10 underneath stands for 'for another PC'). the previous key for Windows 8.1 meant. Above it says 'for this PC' and I hope I was able to print it out clearly. DSL is available - so pretty lame.

But I would be grateful for a link to the solution ;-)
Here is my problem:
