Can I Transfer OEM Windows License to New SSD without Deleting Data

I'm planning to sell my computer with Windows 10 Pro OEM. Can I unbind the OEM license from my HDD and move it to a new SSD when I resell the computer? Thanks!

The OEM license key is pre-installed on the computer by the manufacturer. Each OEM version has its key on the hard drive. It is tied to your motherboard. Use a new SSD and install the same Windows on it, Windows will be activated automatically. And you won't lose your license key even if you change your hard drive.

If you want to migrate an OEM system to a new SSD, you can try a practical and professional tool for system migration. EaseUS Partition Master allows you to easily migrate OEM Windows to a new SSD without losing data.

The tool has a simple interface and is easy to use. The following are quick steps to solve the problem:

Step 1. Launch EaseUS Partition Master and select "Clone" on the left side.

Step 2. Check the OEM OS and select the target SSD drive.

Step 3. Confirm the warning message and preview the target disk layout. And start the migration process.

Note: The target disk needs to have enough space to support the OEM Windows system. If the target disk has important data, please back it up in advance.
