Moving to SSD

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am planning on buying an was as my old hard drive boots Windows really slowly and takes time launching applications. After 5 minutes, the pc seems so speed up. 


I want don't want to buy a code for Windows 10 so is there a way I could use my old Windows 10 which is activated to activate my new one as I won't need my old one anymore. 


I am aware I can skip the part where it asks for a serial code but I would rather not have the activate Windows watermark. 


I am new to this so there may be something I said that does not make much sense. 


Thanks in advance.

If you've had windows 10 installed on the motherboard before then it should be fine.

Skip that part and it will automatically activate from your motherboard.

Should also mention that might not always be the case for older systems with a traditional BIOS so keeping the product key handy is still a good idea.
