I builded a new PC and I can't activate windows thru microsoft account. I tried to do it with the help from the official website and it didn't help. Any ideas ?
( On the PC I firstly had windows activated I linked it to the microsoft account im using right now )

And of course, you can only use that same license on ONE system. Change it to the new one, and it is no longer valid on the old one.

Where did the original Win 10 license come from?
