Windows 10 upgrade on new SSD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I already upgraded to Win10 from Win 7 on my current SSD. I am looking to move to a new SSD. Can I install win 7 fresh and win 10 again on my new SSD? Im concerned now that the free upgrade period is over that I can't move from Win 7 to Win 10.

Just install Windows 10 directly. Your key from 7 should work to activate it.

Windows 10 is tied to your Microsoft account. If you have an online account there shouldn't be any issue creating a clean install of windows 10. Use the Media Creation Tool and run through a few guides on how to do a clean windows 10 install and you should be set.
