So my boot drive started dying recently so I reinstalled windows, I have an OEM key that I bought it's for 10 enterprise. Before I reinstalled windows I unplugged the old drive and the Ethernet so I didn't activate it in the installation menu I tried doing it in the settings and it didn't work, it didn't say the key was invalid or anything just some weird error code whatever I'm pretty sure these are supposed to be registered in your bios. So I have one question, if I plug the old drive back in, have the Ethernet plugged in and try to do a reinstall on the new drive will it work without issues? I don't want to have to buy a new OEM key again, even if I have to keep the old ssd plugged in I don't care I just wanted to change the windows install to a different drive. Sorry if I'm bothering anyone it's 1 am I can't sleep and I wasted an hour reinstalling everything just go realize that I might have to do it all over again tomorrow.
changing drive shouldn't void your key, motherboard/cpu change might. But you can just activate it again by calling the service line they give you in settings and when they ask you how many computer this key is activated, you say 0, since your previous "computer" isn't around anymore.
