unless you still have your cd copy of windows or a pirated version you will need to buy again 


I wish they would have fixed the race track at the same time they fixed the curb. There are some things in the race track, some really big bumps and roughness, that would have been nice to have gotten through that area a little better.

With free tools like aomei partition assistant you can easely transfer your os to your SSD. Pretty easy.

 

Transfer, change boot device and done

 

EDIT: I've done it many times, never had any problems

The people here don't seem to know what they're talking about. As long as you don't change your motherboard, your key will still be valid. If you're using Windows 7, just re-install it onto the SSD then put in your licence key. If you're using Windows 10, just skip the licence key bit when you re-install and it will activate automatically. You will need to install fresh though rather than transferring the files over from your HDD since that will cause problems.


I edit my posts a lot.
