How to transfer Windows license

This weekend I changed my motherboard and as you may know, this can invalidate your Windows licence.

Here is a simple guide on transferring your license to the new machine.

This is for users that are keeping the current install

Step one: Press the following Win+R

  1. In the window that opened up type CMD
  2. Then type slui.exe 4
  3. Select your country
  4. Call the number
  5. When Microsoft answers mention that you had to swap the motherboard as it “died” (They don’t ask questions then)
  6. Say your Installation ID when asked
  7. Enter the Confirmation ID when asked

Step two: All done.
