I want to keep all my information of my last pc and especially windows. If I just build the computer normally and install my hdd and ssd will my pc boot up normally like my last computer?

I dont have a windows usb or the windows code I used.

So yeah, if i just install my drives will everything boot up normally?

Potentially, yes.... at least in theory.

BUT, you'll likely run into all sorts of driver conflicts, potentially even BSODs etc - which kind of make the "upgrade" more of a headache.

I'd highly recommend you back up your data and clean install the OS on the new hardware, then migrate your data back.
