Reinstalling Windows10 on new SSD

HP Recommended
Laptop HP - 15-dw2008ca
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to replace the HDD with a SSD. I do I re-install Windows10? It was pre=loaded on the HDD when I purchased the laptop?

You've got few options


(a) Using HP Cloud Recovery Tool


(b) Using Microsoft Tool

Both tools allow you to create media to reinstall Windows 10 on new HDD/SSD. I prefer to use option b. Windows will activate itself using the embedded key in BIOS of your machine.
