    Both license are for the software on this laptop, not for a special account. Make a new local account and login with this account, the activation will remain. Then you can change the local account to a microsoft account or create a new microsoft account. If you like you can make a backup of the license with a tool like MSActBackUp v1.2.3 Portable by Ratiborus, but for Win10 this is not nessesary.
