    activation


    I have win 10 on a 500gb hdd (loaded with spamware) and it is activated. I added a 160gb to the system--same motherboard--formatted it then installed win 10--how do I activate this hdd? I would like to clean install on the 500gb hdd but I wanted win 10 on other drive first.

    Settings -> Update & Security -> Activation

    What did you do when it asked you for a product key during the installation?

    So, what does Settings -> Update & Security -> Activation show? Did you upgrade the old hard disk from Windows 7, 8 or 8.1? How did the Windows 10 on the old hard disk get activated?
