Question about reinstalling Windows 10 OEM

So my pc has been acting very strange lately and I am wondering if I could reinstall Windows 10. I’ve heard that the OEM version does not allow you to transfer between computers, but what if it is the same computer?

Ps: I was also wondering how I can wipe my sdd (which has my OS and drivers on it). I currently use a separate hard drive for my games and other software, couldn’t I just take it out of my pc and put it back in after I’ve finished reinstalling Windows?

Thanks in advance

I had a problem with the makers update and 100% drive usage on a laptop. Couldn't get the drive usage problem fixed so had to have Windows repair itself. It was a real pain and it deleted a bunch of stuff but I finally got it to fix itself.

Another question, if I reset windows in the settings, what happens? Does it delete everything off of my ssd with the OS on it or does it also delete everything off of my hard drive used for storage?
