    you will need to enter the product key in Settings > Update & Security > Activation, if it auto activates, then fine, if not, then type slui 4 in an elevated command prompt and that should launch the phone activation wizard, you will need the product ID it gives you, then the Micro$h!t agent will give you the activation ID

    Yes.

    A Retail license refers to the license that you acquire when purchasing a copy of Windows 10 from your local store or an online retailer (such as from Microsoft or Amazon). If you have a Windows 10 Retail license, you can transfer the product key to another computer, as long as you deactivate the old device.

    Ahh gotcha. Is signing out of my microsoft account/factory reseting my 51m enough to deactivate it or do I need to do something else?

    Follow the guide above.

    See also...

    • Uninstall the product key – this is the closest to deactivating the Windows License. This method does not inform Microsoft Activation Servers the license is no longer in use on the machine; instead, it will avoid conflicts down the road if Microsoft Activation Servers were to detect the license in use on more than one system.
    • Format the computer – this method ensures the license is no longer in use on the computer. You can use the convenient Reset option in Windows 10 do this.
