So I'll be buying new parts for a brand new computer (whole new system), and I want to do a fresh install of Windows 10. My current PC has W10 installed on a HDD. My new OS drive will be a NVMe SSD in the new system. How do I go about using my current W10 license and using it on my new computer? Do I use the W10 creation tool kit? I've watched a video using the windows creation tool kit, but it looks like you need a key, however I didn't write down or save digital license key when I upgraded. I do however have the digital license linked to my Microsoft account, if that helps. If its as simple as use the creation kit Im so sorry, Ill delete this lol
