Hi PB,
Apart from that 1 error, nothing else is wrong with it.
You should be fine with an operater, computers only do what there told

True that. I will get in touch with an operator and let you know how it goes

Thank you so much for your kind help

Here's the post,

Selling my motherboard. How do I "unactivate" Windows 10 on it? - Page 2 - Windows 10 Forums

Interesting link, it works for me in Chrome. It appears to be an alternative to phone activation, a mobile activation option.

Thanks, but the https://microsoft.gointeract.io/mobileweb/ link still doesn't open up for me. I tried opening it from different PCs with different IPs, still nothing

You're welcome, sorry, I really don't know anything about that link. It does work for me, maybe it's not for your geographic location.

It's just an alternate option to the activate by phone method,

Activate Windows 7 by Phone



This is from the link that isn't working for you,

This is the help screen,

I would just go with the regular phone activation since that's what you have access too.

Thank you Derekimo

I think this is what is happening with the link: from a reddit user

Quote:
I just checked an old one that I had done before, and the link URL contains a session ID, account ID and your phone number. I'm under the assumption that these are meant to be one time uses, and they are tracked.
Anyway, I will try and connect with a MS Rep here in India and see how it goes

Will keep you guys posted

Yeah, I read that in the link I posted, the link there was unusable for me, I think they were linking something already in progress.

I just posted that as an info link as to what it's for.

This link is not in any progress,

https://microsoft.gointeract.io/mobi...6914549&dnis=3

It works every time for me, and always starts at the beginning. Just trying to close the tab will get this,

Installed New Motherboard; Windows Activation Fails-2016-07-12_22h20_03.png

Without actually doing anything there.

So I say all that just to say that what they wrote is not what I see happening so I don't think that's the reason it's not working for you.
