Installing a new cpu and mother board and need to know about reinstalling windows 10

Hi, so I am about to buy a new cpu and motherboard for my pc. However i wish to use my old hdd which already has windows 10 home installed on it. I know i cant use that install of windows 10 but i was wondering how i can remove it and use the usb boot drive i have with windows 10 on it. Preferably I would like to be able to retain my old personal files like pictures and stuff on my hdd but i would be able to back up my files if i have to.
