        My power supply died on my laptop.My power supply died on my laptop. HPS replacing machine with the same model same basic specs. If I install my windows 10 pro on the new machine since it’s running windows home, will I be able to use the same serial number as I had on the old one?

        I would think that come but how can I transfer it from the old machine when I have no power in the old machine to uninstall?

        You can try. You can always still do the free upgrade from home to pro. See Here’s how you can still get a free Windows 10 upgrade | ZDNet for instructions.

        Windows 10 license is tied to the hardware it was installed on and can’t be transferred/reinstalled.
        You will have to call Microsoft support.
