New CPU, motherboard, RAM if desired.

You will almost certainly have to do a full wipe and reinstall.

What OS? Win 10? Transfer of the license is a maybe, depending on where the current install came from.
Which is...where?

Yes, you will want to format the M.2 drive for your Windows installation. You will also want to disconnect your HDD Storage drive before you start your Windows installation.

The question asked of you is. "Where did the Windows 10 License come from?". This, more than anything, will determine if your license will transfer over to your new build.

And for the actual install, have ONLY the one desired OS drive connected.
