Hi:

 

You will have to reinstall the operating system, programs and files on the new hard drive.

 

You can reinstall W10 for free by making bootable installation media with the media creation tool from the link below.

 

Download Windows 10 (microsoft.com)

 

After W10 has completed installing, you can install the drivers and available software from your PC's support page.
