i am not carrying forward any of my old hard drives since i am giving them all away. So i have to buy all the hard drives again and the primary one will be ssd. But i am just wondering how does one go about installing win 10 in new systems
Download win 10 iso from here:

Use Rufus - The Official Website (Download, New Releases) to create a bootable pen drive from above downloaded iso & use that to boot the new pc & install win 10.

P.S. Securely erase your hdd before giving away by using tool like Download – Eraser

Either you can use a portable DVD drive to install from the DVD or a Bootable Pendrive (8GB)

Just boot using any of the above and install on a new system.

Thanks @whitestar_999 for simplifying. One last question is how do i get the license for the win 10 software after downloading?

so i have got my ddr 4 ram delivered by amazon which i ordered before lockdown.
I had bought asrock b450pro and amd ryzen 5 3600 before that and corsair spec01.
I had windows 7 installed on my old desktop and since i am using the old hdd its still windows 7.
problem is when im turning on my pc the keyboard and mouse dont work at all and i get this message by windows of unsupporting hardware. in it its written processor is not supported. I searched google and i found that windows 7 is supported by ryzen 5 3600 and to use ps2 mouse keyboard but i dont have that

so what do i do here .. the dvd drive is also not ejecting that i could insert a win10 install disk

i do the laptop dvd drive since i installed an ssd using a caddie on it

Why are you even trying to install an officially out of support OS on latest hardware? Just install win 8.1 with classic shell/open shell to make it look more like win 7 if you absolutely don't want to install win 10.

I am not trying to install win7. It was already on my old HDD which I didn’t upgrade.
I’ve swapped laptop ssd into the desktop and made a bootable pendrive of win10 and currently installing it on my HDD.
The SSD is for my laptop since it’s very handy for office related work

The moment i connected the ssd to my desktop it booted to win10 and all keyboard mouse processor ram were working fine.

So you have a ssd with win 10 on it for laptop & a hdd with 10 on it for desktop.
No I had an SSD with Win10 on laptop and HDD Win7 on desktop.
I got the hdd to install win10 via pendrive now I am all ok . played gta v and could notice the speed and graphics upgrade immediately from ryzen 5 3600 and 16gb ram. I am still running the old AMD HD 7770 sapphire one and will likely upgrade to either AMD 5600xt or nvidia 1660 super .
I got some issues like i have a local usb wifi adapter for which keeps disconnecting frequently coz of which steam downloads get interrupted. my monitor sucks its a philips 19" which is 7 yrs old and due for an upgrade for which i got some recommendations in my thread. keyboard is also that much old , its a cooler master cmstorm , its backspace and enter keys don't work. so will upgrade that also. have upgraded the mouse to logitech g102.

After every 5-15 minutes , internet connectivity is gone. The wifi stays connected but with no internet. I have to turn wifi off and back on to get it to connect again.
No such issue in any other device.

First of all, that is completely wrong description. Theoretically N wifi standard can support at max 300mbps on single 2.4GHz band using a single antenna. I think your wifi adapter is malfunctioning or is getting too hot(touch it to feel the difference when net is working & when it is not).

Assuming the OS is Windows 10 fully updated, please check the manufacturer of your device from Device Manager. I use a dongle for my desktop and seen exactly similar symptoms. Manufacturer is reported as Ralink.

I read somewhere on the internet that the standard driver that is used by Windows is the issue. I was advised to search for a driver released by MediaTak and after installing that, there are no major issues for more than 3 months now.

The one I used is this I THINK, BUT NOT 100% SURE - RT2870

@theterminator also check in device manager--network adapters--usb wireless lan card--right click & select properties. In general tab you will see the name of the manufacturer & in power management tab check that turn off this device to save power is not ticked.

Buy a 120GB SATA SSD for 1.6-2k & install Win10 on it. No point using OS on HDD these esp considering the amount you spent on CPU alone.
