    can i transfer hard disk Windows 10 to another pc

    Hello Jason,

    Hard disk can be transferred on another machine depending on the license that your device has. For us to help you with your concern, kindly answer the following questions:

    • We'd like to know if your device came with a Windows 10 pre-installed Operating System?
    • Is your hard disk will be considered as a secondary storage on the other machine?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you check this article for more information regarding your query:

  3. Windows licensing after hard disk change

    Due to some technical problem, I have to change my Hard disk of my HP Notebook. When I bought the laptop windows 8.1 was preinstalled in it, and then I upgraded to windows 10 while the free upgradation period. Now I have the question that after changing
    the harddisk, How am I suppose to get the genuine operating system back. (I don't have any system recovery)

    I just have the ISO file of Windows 10 which I have put into a DVD. So, after the change of hard disk if I try to install Windows 10 from the DVD, will I be able to get the genuine version automatically when I sign in with my microsoft account to which it
    is currently being linked? Or else how can I license it?

  4. Windows 10 license if hard disk is changed?

    Regarding windows license re-activation after hard disk changes

    It will automatically reactivate as long as you reinstall the exact edition you were running on the hard disk.

    Step 1: How
    to download official Windows 10 ISO files


    Step 2:


    When you upgraded from a previous version of Windows or receive a new computer preinstalled with Windows 10, what happened is the hardware (your PC) will get a digital entitlement, where a unique signature of the computer will be stored on Microsoft
    Activation Servers. The Windows 7 or Windows 8 genuine license you were previously running will be exchanged for a diagnostics key.

    Anytime you need to reinstall Windows 10 on that machine, just proceed to reinstall Windows 10. It will automatically reactivate.
    You will prompted to enter a product key a couple times through the installation, click I don't have a key and Do this later.

    There is no need to know or get a new key, but if you have issues with Digital Licensing or the Activation Troubleshooter, you can utilize an existing Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1 product key
    you already ownto reactivate if necessary. or use the reset function in Windows 10.
