[SOLVED] – Lost OEM product key

Hi, Just built myself a new pc, inc. new ssd, complete new build. I created an installation usb from my old pc and installed windows on the new one. Unfortunately I cannot activate as I have lost my OEM product key (and it doesn’t show up with ShowKey).Is there any way to use the ssd I have in my old pc to activate the new system?thanks 

Since you have different hardware, moving your SSD to the new PC won\’t just activate Windows.The license is attached to the hardware, not the SSD.If you created a Microsoft account and linked it to your PC license, then you could activated the PC by login into your Microsoft account.You could use the Windows 10 Activation troubleshooter and select \’I changed hardware on this device recently\’
