    Motherboard change / Windows 10 and 365 Subscription question

    When I assembled this AM4 X370 PC I purchased a Windows 10 Home x64 from Microsoft online directly. Activation went smooth. I have a Microsoft Account and a 365 subscription on this device.
    Recently upgraded from Ryzen 5 1600 to Ryzen 7 2700X. Windows handled the change very smoothly.

    I would like to upgrade to a X470 motherboard. I would prefer to just move my two M.2 SSD's and the GPU and "boot-up". Is that realistic?

    There is a plethora of information with varied instructions.

    Is there a good archival thread here that I could be directed to?

    Or a Microsoft page with the instructions or procedure?

    Thanks for your time and knowledge shared.
