How to Fix Move of Windows10 Pro to other laptop with Windows7 on Windows 10?

  1. If you say Windows 7 was not a genuine licence then the answer is no.

    If Windows 7 came pre-installed by the manufacturer of the laptop (usually the case) then the licence would normally be OEM and that is locked to the device it was supplied on.

    This restriction is carried over to Windows 1o after an upgrade.

    If you buy a new laptop it would normally be supplied with Windows 10. Unless there are options to buy without an operating system or just with DOS or Linux.

    Both are 2 laptops from the company where I used to work. When we got a new laptop, the IT department cleaned the old laptop and reinstalled everything. Seems they used for 1 laptop not a genuine license, but for the other one they did. Windows 7 with the genuine license is now updated to Windows10 but is on the oldest and slowest laptop. So I thought to move the official Windows 10 license to the other laptop, which has the not genuine Windows 7 on board. If this would be possible.

  3. Hi, I’m Elise, an Independent Advisor and I’d be happy to help with your issue.

    You can only move the license if it is a retail license key, Could you check this by running the following command, using the command prompt:

    slmgr -dli

    Then post back the results.

    Please let me know if you need any further assistance.

    Kind Regards,
    Elise
