  1. Hello, how are you?
    Welcome to the Microsoft Community!

    My name is Paloma B., I’m an independent advisor, I’m here to help you in the best possible way.

    I understand that you have questions about Windows licensing.

    Yes, it is possible to transfer a key from one installation to another, including the procedure of the mentioned video is correct.

    For this procedure to work you need only two things.

    The first is that you also mentioned, the license needs to be a retail license.

    Second is that the installed version must be the same as the license, for example, if you have a Windows 10 Pro license, to use it in your installation, Windows 10 Pro must be installed on the computer, if it is the home version, it does not it works.

    In this case I understand that you have a Windows 10 Pro installation and a Windows 10 Pro retail license, so it will work correctly.

    I await news.
