Hp spectre x360 13
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Greetings , 

I recetly bought  an HP Spectre  x360 (13 inch version) which came  with its own  genuine windows 10 .... now i would like to upgrade its 250 ssd to a higher one , but  then how  will i re-install the Windows 10 on the new ssd ?  Also there doesnt seem to be any  way of seeing my product key  or anything like that so  how will i activate the genuine windows 10 on the new ssd (even if i  manage to install it anyway)  ?

Hi,


You can either clone system partitions of HDD to SSD using cloning tools like Macrium Reflect.

Else do a clean install of Windows 10 Home by creating UEFI bootable installation USB using Microsoft windows media creation tool.

Windows will be automatically activated after installation while connected to internet

I would suggest making your Recovery Media to boot from and install Windows on the new ssd. No license key required to install Windows and all original drivers/software is restored.

 

Look for HP Recovery Manager in the start menu. Open it and create recovery media. >Windows 10
