I need help installing new motherboard!

After several hours, I managed to swap out motherboards to a new one. I need help with the part that comes after once I boot the computer, will stuff automatically update? Do I need to reinstall windows/repurchase? I can build a computer just fine at my own slow pase, but when it comes to that stuff afterwards it makes me nervous and would like some help. btw the motherboard came with a Disk to install something and I have no optical drive. Any help would be very much appreciated!

Old motherboard Asus - H110M-E/M.2 Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

New Motherboard - MSI - B250M GAMING PRO Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

This is my current build with the new motherboard.

You have an OEM version of windows which means your windows licence is tied to your motherboard and can not be transferred to another motherboard

When dealing with a different mobo (motherboard), clean install of the operating system is the typical practice.
