    Hello.
    I had windows 7 ultimate activated by Daz.
    Then I used Media Creation tool to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro.
    After upgrading, My Computer properties showing Windows Activated.
    Now, my question is, is there any remaining thing I need to do?
    Thanks.

    You're good to go as is but you can convert your local account to an MS account for a permanent digital HWID that can be transferred to another computer.

    So you mean if I change my Hardware, I can use same MS account?

    Yes as long as it's the same edition of Windows 10 you can use the activation troubleshooter to transfer your license to the new hardware.

    Okay. Here is the situation.
    I have Desktop computer where windows 7 is upgraded to windows 10 and Windows 10 looks activated (due to daz in previous windows 7).
    So, now, I have a laptop where I have created some virtual machines like Redhat Linux and Windows 10.
    Now, If i want to activate this virtual Windows 10 in Virtual machine in laptop, then should I use same MS account that I used in Desktop computer so that It will activate Virtual windows 10 also?

    You should not use the activation from a real machine on a VM (in the past we have seen that after activating the vm with the msa, the other machine is no longer activated), there are hwid tools that can be used (not to be discussed on MDL), or generate a new hwid on the used vm.

    Thanks. How do I generate new hwid? Does KMS Spico do it?
