I bought a laptop from Craigslist, upon inspection, I click on system and see that It has windows 10 pro 64 bit and product is activated. So I feel it was legit.
Paid the person and left .
at home, I use Media creation tool, select installation media for other computer, and make a bootable USB.
In my mind , since I have an activated windows, re installing will be fine , since it will read my motherboard has been registered and activated. I make sure I reinstall the same exact version win 10 pro 64 Bit.
Went ahead and boot USB, Format my drive and fresh install windows 10.
here is the kicker. The windows will not activate?
so I am guessing I got duped?
second question is , is it still that easy to trick system properties to say windows is activated ??
