So I have a lenovo laptop which had windows 7 in it which I updated to windows 10 on the stock HDD it came with. Now I bought a SSD and want to do a fresh windows 10 install on it. Initially my idea was to clone the drive simply but the problem there is that the hard drive seems to be nearing its end and is too slow to clone. What are my options? If i directly put the new SSD and install windows 10 will it recognize the hardware and auto activate if i skip the key step and go ahead (It was a windows 7 laptop upgraded to Win 10)?
