    Transfer Windows OEM license from m.2 ssd to sata ssd


    Hello


    I have a laptop that came with Windows 10 education on its m.2 ssd, so its probably an OEM license

    I have a sata ssd that has Windows 10 home on it, that I added to the laptop to boot from

    I want to replace my m.2 ssd with a different one with more storage, but I want to keep my Windows education because it has more features than the home edition remote control, hyper-v, etc


    because it will run on the same motherboard with the same hardware except the m.2 ssd, I think the OEM license should work

    but I do not know how to transfer the license, since it does not have a code and is not linked to a microsoft account


    I would like to avoid formatting my sata ssd if possible


    any ideas?

    :)

    Booted desktop SATA SSD with laptop M.2 SSD now the desktop SSD won't work (both have windows 10 installed)

    A little backstory, both SSD's have windows 10 on them with different license of course.

    I wanted to read the laptop SSD as a regular drive so I can export files from, into my new desktop. I placed the laptop ssd into the desktop while it was running, but there was nothing to be found in disk management, so i rebooted.

    After rebooting, i unexpectedly found that it booted into my laptop's windows with it's SSD as C: , instead of my desktop's.

    I then copied the files i needed from my laptop's ssd into a third formatted ssd and proceeded to attempt to reboot into my desktop's windows with the original SATA ssd.

    Now my original windows on the SATA ssd wont boot and is stuck on automatic repair loop, while booting from my laptop's m.2 windows and SSD works perfectly fine.

    I need to boot from my original SATA ssd because I wont be needing my m.2 laptop SSD.

    I have an ASROCK B450M/ac motherboard

    (You might suspect that windows dual boot have replaced the boot files of the first drive, and now it depends on the second drive to boot, but even with the second drive in, the windows on the first drive still wont boot. I can still access all the data
    in my SATA SSD through my m.2 ssd's windows).
