Question Changing my M.2 SSD with OS installed on it.

Hey yall! Currently I have a 256GB M.2 SSD with my Windows 10 installed on it. I've been looking at 1TB M.2s and was wondering whether I could transfer my Windows 10 over somehow or do I have to do a fresh install with a new key?

Windows 10 is linked to my Microsoft account. I have an OEM key.

Yes, 2 choices, either by cloning or making a backup and than restoring it to new disk. W10 key is tied to your motherboard so it will not be a problem.
