I fear that you may be out of luck.  Windows deliberately frustrates this

every one of its alarms.

Fortunately modern versions at least allow you to move the installation to a different machine without requiring a reinstall. You might be told you need to relicense it, and it will take some time to reconfigure itself to the new hardware it finds itself running on, but it'll work at least.
