    Will I lose my license?


    So, I currently have a Windows 10 Pro license upgraded from Windows 8.1.

    If I buy a new SSD, and install Windows 10 using the same CD-Key which my current Windows 10 has (no other hardware change, only SSD) will that work or will I have to buy a new license?

    I have 2 SSD's installed on my machine, one is a CLONE. After I make a new CLONE, (backup purposes) I usually boot up on the Clone and test for a day or so. No Problems yet.

    It will be fine - no need to enter any key as you now have a digital licence tied to your mobo.
