Just helping a friend. Is it possible to transfer the windows 10 license just using windows account?
His laptop's SSD just failed and he has no backup or recovery for that.
Or is there any way that we can retrieve that license?

Laptop Model:
MSI GS63VR 6RF Stealth Pro

if he is installing WIn 10 on a PC its already been on, he shouldn't need a key

When he gets to the screen asking for licence, click "I don't have a key" and win 10 will continue to install and then check activation servers once its completed and may auto activate. If it doesn't reactivate, he can follow steps here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/20530/windows-10-reactivating-after-hardware-change

changing drive isn't seen as a hardware change
