I upgraded to windows 10 from 7 but I've just installed a new motherboard/cpu and gpu.

It's now asking for me to put my windows key in but im getting an error "0XC004F050"

I have no idea what im supposed to do but my guess is that it doesn't like it as its a windows 8 key but im still on windows 10?

Any help would be great!

At best, you'll have to call MS.
At worst, purchase a whole new OS.

That Win 10 Upgrade applies to that original hardware.
The 'license' for that Upgraded Win 10 is a combination of your old OS license and info from your hardware. Change the motherboard = "new PC".
