I have a digital license for Windows 10 Pro x64 that is tied to my Microsoft account. I activated this license on an old PC, but when I try to use it to activate Windows on a new PC, it doesn’t work. When I go to the activation settings on the new PC, I see a message that says “Windows is not activated. A valid product key was not found (0xC004F213).”

I tried using the trouble shooter, but it says “Windows cannot be activated on this device.” When I click on the option that says “I recently changed the hardware for this device,” it shows me the old motherboard. If I try to activate, I get a message that says “Windows cannot be activated.”

I also tried entering the product key for the old PC into the settings on the new PC, but I get an error message saying the key is invalid (0x80041023). I’m not sure what to do now. Both PCs have Windows 10 Pro x64 installed using the same USB drive.
