Windows 10: What is the "best" way to stand up a new HDD

    Thanks NavyLCDR,

    The only time a system of mine got infected it was a bad one. Nothing was lost. In this case I really think the only infection I have is Windows 10. Ok, that is a joke but I think Windows 10 has some issues that might be specific to my computer, for whatever reason. A new install may be the best way to fix that and there are many other benefits. The primary drawback is time and effort; especially with drivers on a brand name laptop...

    Thanks for the response!
    Sorry, standing up is an old? IT term. It means making a system available for use.
    I am concerned about licensing issues. Are we allowed to put the OS on two HDD's and swap back and forth using the same license?
    I am old and my father is older, there was never a term "Stand UP" for hard drives. The old Corvus 12" platter drives, you had to home the head by titling them. You cannot place the OS on two different hard drives, also why would you put the same OS on two different drives to begin with. Even if you used two different hard drive brands and types, Windows could care less.

    Okay yes you can as long as neither is used at the same time that would be against terms of use :)
    You can dual boot like you say if it's on the same machine.
    Many use virtual machines the same way you and i just do it on read hardware instead of sharing resource like memory and cpu cores.
    Actually it wouldn't if they had Insider on one and non-insider on another. The OS could care less, same as Microsoft. Some of the Pro keys that are usable out there that Microsoft issued are actually Volume keys.
