>old motherboard fries
>get a new one
>hard drive windows installation won't let me boot up
>apparently I have to 'buy it' again and cant even get my files back

Is Microsoft really THIS jewish or am I misunderstanding something?

did you read the motherboard handbook?

OEM licenses are tied to mobo.
That's why they're cheaper.

>2016
>buying windows
>>
>>52226545

Even that doesn't make sense. When I boot it up it wants to run a repair tool, so Windows is clearly still detected.

>>52226569
hurr durr license = installation

why do I even bother helping plebs like you.
>>
>>52226569
what the fuck doesn't make sense? That windows key is only valid for your old motherboard. Do you even know how to google?

Boot up your system from a usable dvd or flash drive with Knoppix and back up your files that way

How the fuck are you using a computer
>>
>>52226533
When you license your Windows installation, it reads what motherboard you have. If that bit of data doesn't match, it thinks you stole the OS. It's fucking retarded, but that's how it is. Just run RemoveWAT, KMSpico, whatever have you. Or install Linux.

Is there any way to do something simple like swap out the hdd with an ssd without downloading and reinstalling a pirated copy?
>>
>>52226569
>When I boot it up it wants to run a repair tool
It's not asking you to buy the OS again, it's just being stupid with the new hardware. Do you not have an OS disk to run repair from?
>>
>>52226716
I guess that would work too, but that seems like a bit of a hassle.
>>
>>52226761

No. Can I put it on a USB or something?
>>
>>52226802
A better question is, Can you use the fucking google?
>>
>>52226802
>Can I put it on a USB or something
If you have a different computer and the iso, yes. But Windows is weird about USB boot disks. If you try to put a 64bit version onto a USB while using a 32bit one it won't work period.

Yes, install daz loader

your install is fine, you're just fucking retarded. if the install was no longer activated, you would not be prevented from using it. either you need to configure your bios to use the correct settings (AHCI, raid, or whatever the fuck your other bored was set to), or there's a problem with the drive (data corruption or hardware failure)

either way, if you couldn't even figure that out on your own you have no chance at fixing it yourself you useless fuck.
>>
>>52226569
well duh. you have a new mobo with completely different components and are surprised that it's not booting up straight away? are you retarded?
