You do not need one. It is already in your laptop.

Hi chieutan,

 

If you had one of the latest versions of Windows 10 installed, you have a digital license that is linked to your Microsoft account (if you logged in with your Microsoft account).

This means that you should be able to reinstall Windows 10, note the edition (Home, Pro, Education, etc.), log in with your Microsoft account and activate without entering a key.


Kind regards,
Axe0

This is not true of just "the latest versions" of Windows 10 but of ALL versions of Windows 10.

From what I know, all builds, as of the anniversary update, have a digital license linked to the Microsoft account. Any build before that have a digital license NOT linked to Microsoft account.

Difference, only with a license linked to Microsoft account the motherboard can be replaced without activation problems.

This is not true. I have been a beta user of Windows 10 since Feb. 2015, and the digital license has always been a major part of the OS structure.

 

Either way, I feel that the OP was just fishing for some illegal license so it is best to avoid helping him too much.

If you change out your motherboard, and you do not have a Microsoft account linked to that pc then you do loose your digital license.

Your best legal option is to buy a version of Windows10 from a registered Windows retailer

Again, the part where you can link your license to your Microsoft account is here since the anniversary.

 

 

In Windows 10 (Version 1607 or later), you can link your Microsoft account to the Windows 10 digital license on your device.

This the first I have heard of being able to change your MB on an OEM version of Windows and still have the OS activate. This is for OEM versions also or only Retail?

According to the answer from https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install-winpc/windows-10-oem-changed-to-digital-license/e0085acc-c0db-4ae8-af8f-6b8e6e2ea2f3, it's not possible with OEM. Though, I've never seen a system with OEM activation need to transfer it.

I have heard where Microsoft will transfer the license on an OEM computer with a new MB if you call and nicely explain the reason for the MB change.

You are right but there was no indication that the OP had changed out his motherboard.

I got the impression the OP changed out the motherboard when they said "damaged mainboard laptop" but I could be wrong.

Indeed, but that shouldn't be necessary. A laptop where the motherboard is replaced should get a new motherboard with a OEM already flashed AFAIK. (Unless it has changed in the years)

Damaged mainboard in the laptop can only be fixed by replacement.
