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.
