    I did a clean install of Windows 10 Home on my laptop (Windows is activated and it's running on a SSD).
    I'm going to build a computer and my question is: what will happen if I take the SSD from the laptop and put it on my new PC? Will Windows 10 be activated on my new PC?

    What OS, retail or OEM:D

    If it's OEM, then No, it will not work

    You need DAZ's loader in MDL QUICK LINKS in Sig :D

    Yes...as stated that Windows 7 be installed first
    it just seems like extra work to install 7 a then upgrade to 10. Is there not a way to just go straight to 10 and do not pass go?

    Yes, if you wish you could go with a KMS solution in Cody's MTK in MDL QUICK LINKS

    Retail, OEM:NONSLP, OEM:DM key. Rule of thumb: Individual keys yes, public keys no.

    Thank you all for your replies.
    I have Windows 7 Home Premium OEM license on my laptop and one year ago I decided to upgrade to Windows 10, so every time I clean install Windows 10 on my laptop, Windows 10 is automatically activated. My last question is: what will happen if I clean install Windows 10 on my new computer, with Media Creation Tool, linking my Microsoft account to the digital license? Will Windows 10 Home be activated because of Microsoft account?
