Error What it means and how to fix it

Windows reported that the hardware of your device has changed.

0xC004F211

A Windows license is associated with your device hardware. If you make significant hardware changes, such as replacing your motherboard, Windows won’t be able to find a matching license the next time you start your device. If Windows was preinstalled on the device and you have made a change such as replacing the motherboard, you'll need a new license.

To purchase a new Windows license, Start  > Settings  > Update & Security  > Activation , and then select Go to Microsoft Store.
 Open Activation settings

If you have a Windows product key you used on your device before the hardware change, enter it by selecting Start  > Settings  > Update & Security  > Activation , and then selecting Change product key

Additionally, Microsoft provides an exception path for transferring a Windows License after a hardware change. You’ll need to be signed in to the same Microsoft account before making the hardware change and to use the exception path.  

To access this exception path, select Start  > Settings  > Update & Security  > Activation , and then select Troubleshoot. If the troubleshooter can’t resolve the issue, you’ll see a link to reactivate after a hardware change. Select it to follow this path. For more info, see Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change

If the troubleshooter detects a valid Windows 10 digital license for an edition not currently installed, it will let you know and show you how to install the correct edition.

Reasons why you might see these errors:
 
  • You entered a product key that can't be used to activate Windows. Enter a different product key or buy a new product key.
  • You upgraded to Windows 10, but the activation servers were busy. If you upgraded from an activated copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, your copy of Windows 10 will be automatically activated, or you can wait a while and then select Activate. If you continue to have problems with activation, contact customer support.
  • You upgraded to Windows 10 using the free upgrade offer, but Windows 10 isn't activated after a reinstall. Your copy of Windows 10 should automatically be activated as long as you didn't make any significant hardware changes to your device (such as replacing the motherboard). If you continue to have problems with activation, contact customer support.
 
0xC004C003

You may see this error because the Windows 10 product key you entered isn’t valid. Product keys are unique—assigned to a specific user to install on a single device. If a key was used (or attempted to be used) on multiple devices, it’s marked as not valid. To activate Windows, you’ll need to provide a different Windows key unique to your device.   

If you bought a device from a reseller of Windows 10 and expected the key to be valid, contact the reseller. If your device was purchased with Windows 10 preinstalled and you received this activation error upon turning it on for the first time, contact your device manufacturer. 

If your experience with your device is different from those listed above, try the following: 

  • Run the Windows 10 Activation Troubleshooter: Select Start > Settings  > Update & Security  > Activation  and then select Troubleshoot
    Open Activation settings

  • Check to see if you have a paper copy of your Windows 25-character product key you can enter to activate Windows 10. 

  • If your device was recently repaired at an independent repair facility, contact them to see if the repairs require a new Windows 10 license. 

  • If the device is new and has never been activated, contact your device manufacturer.
