    I recently moved a Windows 8.1 system from a HDD to SSD. See my guide http://www.eightforums.com/installat...s-hdd-ssd.html

    The same procedure should work for Windows 10. Ensure you backup your system first - but this is one of the steps in the transfer process.

    With the Win10 upgrade, the license is associated with the hardware mix, not a product key. Once Win10 is activated on the PC, you can switch out the HDD for an SSD with no problems -- I know because I did this myself.
