    I need to install Windows 10 on new hard drive


    I'll be getting a new hard drive in the next couple months, and quite possibly AFTER the one-year free upgrade limitation. So, how do I install Win10 on a new drive without losing the free upgrade that I've had since last July?

    You can replace the HDD on the PC that already has been upgraded..
    As that PC has digitial entitlement regardless of HDD

    Does the following statement apply to the free Windows 10 license?
    'OEM versions allow all hardware upgrades except for an upgrade to a different model motherboard.'── quoted from http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...3-cc55cf7b9231
