Is There Any Way To Transfer Windows 7 License From HDD to SSD?

I currently have Windows 7 Pro 64bit installed into a single WD hard drive. I want to transfer my HDD system partition onto the SSD. My question is how to transfer and whether can I use the license. If I launch the Windows 7 to SSD and activate using the existing license code... will Microsoft's activation servers allow this?

In this case, you only need to transfer Windows 7 to SSD and set this SSD as the boot drive without using the Windows license. Don't worry about how to migrate OS significantly to another drive because I will provide an effective way to help you realize that. The "Migrate OS to SSD" feature of EaseUS Partition Master allows you to transfer all data on HDD, including Windows OS and programs. This tool will transfer OS to SSD easily without wasting much time. In addition, the software can also cone data disk and partition to another drive.
