    Reuse my hard disk again to install new windows 10


    Hi,

    I have a hard disk with windows 10, this windows 10 already damaged and now I need to use this hard disk again in my laptop.

    Do I need to format the C drive in this hard disk? or just ignore the formatting and install windows 10 again?

    Thanks.

    :)

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?

    Install Windows 10 on new hard drive.

    Hi Arzlo,

    Thank you for being a part of Windows 10.

    I appreciate you for providing details about the issue and we are happy to help you.

    Please be informed that you cannot install the activated Windows 10 on to the new hard disk.

    If you are replacing the hard disk then you may get Windows 10 activation errors.

    If you are purchasing a new hard disk then, you may have to install genuine Windows 7 (SP1)/8.1 to upgrade to Windows 10 to get Windows 10 activated.

    I suggest you to run check disk on the hard drive to see if there are any corruptions.

    Follow the below steps:

    • Windows key + X, click Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Command Prompt, type the following command, and then press
      ENTER
      :
    chkdsk /f

    Disclaimer: While performing check disk on the hard drive, if any bad sectors are found then check disk will try to repair that sector. Any data available on a bad sector might be lost.

    Once Check Disk completes, boot the computer and then check.

    Reference: Refer to the following Microsoft article on Windows 10 Q&A.

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/windows-10-faq?ppud=4

    Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance with Windows. We are glad to assist you.

    Thank you.
