    Sometimes if the hardware supported, you can just move the drive and run the installed windows on new hardware with couple minutes of automatic driver installation.
    But if you want to reinstall windows, move the hdd and boot to windows setup with usb or dvd, then on partition option just delete your system partition and install new windows on that partition. If your hdd is mbr format, make sure your bios and windows setup is on legacy mode, but if it's gpt then you better set your bios and windows setup to uefi too.
