  3. I want to upgrade my laptop's disk to SSD but I have an OEM license

    Hello, as the subject says I want to upgrade my Asus X555U laptop's disk to an SSD, the laptop came with an OEM Win 10 Home license and I've read that when reinstalling Win 10, the key is recognized automatically from the BIOS without me typing the actual
    key, does this apply to an OEM license or do I need to purchase a new key?

    Migrating Win10 OEM Upgrade from HDD to SSD

    I recently helped a friend with OEM Windows 7 Home Premium on his laptop upgrade to Windows 10. All went well with no probs - so laptop is currently running Windows 10 OEM.

    He now wants to swap out the single HDD for a Samsung 850 Evo SSD. Can I simply migrate the HDD to the SSD, and then swap the SSD for the HDD - and Windows 10 OEM will still be activated?

    I did something similar with my laptop (running Win10 Retail, upgraded from Win8.1 retail), using the Samsung migration software.

    Will a similar job work with Win10 OEM?

    Thanks for any help/advice.
