Moving a Hybrid Drive to a new PC (Without OS)

Hi all,

I have searched online but all of the results say "moving windows to a new pc?". All I want to do is move it from an old pc and do a fresh install of windows as it saves like £60. Do I just wipe all the files and move it? If so, what program should I use?

Thanks all,
Pieswick03

  1. Windows might allow you to make some swaps. You can replace your motherboard once. All you need is your windows key and the install image from their website. You still might end up having to pay for Windows again.

    What OS is this?
    Where did it come from?

    This depends hugely on what specific OS it is, and where it came from.
  4. Its an Win 10 OEM so yeah I can't move it over. Thanks for the replies anyways.
