Say you had an old windows computer or laptop with a copy of windows 10, could you plug the hard drive into your new computer and transfer the file of windows 10 onto your ssd?

Retail version: Yes.
OEM version: No.

You can check for yourself by reading your own MICROSOFT SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS in the "old windows computer or laptop" in question.

Fair enough. Its a laptop which means the hard drive might have a hard time leaving its original shell...

Thank you.

If it's 2.5" SATA shouldn't too much of an issue, and it's been pretty common for laptops for quite a few years at this point.
