  1. Windows 10 OEM reinstall on new drive


    I have an OEM version of Win10 that came on a bootable disk.

    I installed that on my current SSD. Now I'm wondering what to do if this SSD gets corrupted.

    Can I just re-install Windows on a new SSD even though it's the OEM version?

    Do I need to so something with the installation on the old drive (e.g. formatting the SSD) before I can install it on the new drive?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 OEM reinstall on new drive

    my windows 10 oem didn't come with a product key

    Dude, go to Newegg right now and read the questions and answers tab on Windows 10 OEM. The OEM copies that are listed there DO in fact, come on an optical disc. The flash drive ONLY comes on Retail copies.
