I'm about to upgrade my Home PC and need to get the Windows 10 licence to activate the new one when is finished. I mean the new one will be the old one but with new components. Please Help!

Where did this Win 10 license come from?
If it is a Win 10 license that you purchased and installed, Belarc Advisor can discover it for you.

If this was an Upgrade from a previous Windows version, (7/8/8.1), that does not count.
Instead, you link that license to your MS account.
Then you build up the new system.
Install the OS
When it reports as Unactivated (it will) this is when you go through the activation troubleshooter, and tell it about the new system.



For the OS activation, read and do this before you change any parts:

An update from what?
As I remember it was an upgrade from Windows 8. But I think that the licence is linked to my Microsoft account as you said. So what I need to do is wait for the activation process to take action. I just need the lass part I ordered to start building it. It will be next Monday.
