    windows 10 license on a failing hard drive.


    I have a lenovo thinkpad that's only drive (hdd) is starting to go. the computer blue screens multiple times a day then fails to reboot without a little persuasion. I have an ssd i'd like to replace the existing drive with but i don't know if i will need a new windows license or if there is some way for me to transfer the one that came with the computer.
