Can transfer be done offline without using MS account? How would activation work if no MS account?
Yes key gets attach to your Microsoft account. Except Motherboard, changing other hardware wouldn’t be a problem. Even if change motherboard be sure to uninstall the key and format the system.Payment done and received the key. Need to set up the system.
Please clarify if the key gets attached to email id and wouldn't mind major hardware changes? So I can test in present system
