Windows 10 pro product key not valid after upgrade

HP EliteBook 8570w Mobile Workstation
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

 So I recently upgraded my computer for christmas,

I took my hard drive out of my hp elitebook 8570w and put in my gaming pc. But now it says the microsoft key is not valid. I contacted microsoft and they said im going to need a new windows 10 pro key from the manufacor. I do have the product key and the serial number to verify it was one that i had. It would be awesome if a hp repesnitvie can help me.

Thanks!

Brayden

Hi Brayden

 

HP has no official presence in this forum except for moderators.

 

I don't work for HP. I am a volunteer forum member.

 

Microsoft will not allow moving an OEM product key from one motherboard to a different motherboard.

 

Your EliteBook 8570w has a limited OEM product key.

 

Retail product keys can be moved to different motherboards.
