Kumki added a topic in Microsoft (Windows) Discussion & SupportClean reinstall Windows 10 after activation from HDD to SSDHello,
I have my desktop successfully upgraded from Windows 8.1 pro to Windows 10 Pro.
Windows is activated and running without issues but it is running on mechanincal HDD.
I would like to perform a clean install to a brand new SSD on the same desktop and startover.
I don't want to clone the drive from HDD to SSD.
Here is what I've done so far.
Have my windows 8.1 product keys
Obtained and ran the script to pull the windows 10 key after activation as recommended in some forums.
Question is if I reinstall using the ISO or USB key on to SSD on the same desktop
will it activate without issues? Will changing the hard drive trigger the
activation check? My system is a Dell XPS8700 btw.
