This is my first build and with the process of part shopping figuring out what I wanted I never though of the OS. I have a PC with a 500gb hard drive running windows but when I bought this PC I didn't get a disk. Is there any way to copy windows to my new 1tb hard drive. If not is there a way to take my current 500gb out and put it in my new PC then somehow transfer windows to the 1tb hard drive. I have always got prebuilt computers so I have never had to worry about an OS and I guess I made a big rookie mistake not leaving any room in my budget for a $100+ OS..Whoops

If your old computer had Windows on it when you bought it, the license for it is tied to that system, you can't transfer it.

Just buy a disk, it is always more convenient.
