Updating Firmware of the FA406.QR from 405 to 406 destroy your Win10 licence

Level 7

I installed the new firmware 2 days ago for my ASUS TUG GAMING A17 from 405 to 406 and well, it should be a warn for everyone who wanted to do so, it changed my computer ID (somehow) so ALL software who use your computer ID will need a new license and Windows 10 told me that my license wasn't activated anymore. I tried everything but no avail. I was using an OEM version of Windows and IF you change anything, your license won't be valid anymore, as much as I'm aware of, I didn't knew that a firmware update could actually do this while ALL the previous update did nothing...

Am I the only one facing that issue =T

Thanks !
