you can completely clone the drive and put it onto the new ssd. Loads of guides on the Internet just type in "clone windows to ssd"

Or  the simple way of doing this  is just buying another oem key and installing windows as usual (£30, would recomend kinguin to buy it)

Also not sure if it works with OEM but you can link windows to your Microsoft account and when installing windows log in and it activates windows. (Install windows on a USB and go into BIOS and boot from it.( see links beloe)

Step 1a Link windows to microsft account

Step 1b if you cannot link the account for some reason you will have to buy a new OEM key, I recomend kinguin 

Step 2 Install windows on USB - download from here

Step 3 plug in usb and go into BIOS. ( spam delete after pressing the power button)

Step 4 when you are in the bios choose the usb as your boot drive and restart the pc

Step 5 your pc shouldn't boot to windows and instead to the windows 10 installer, follow the steps and setup windows (referring to 1a, if it says "sign in at any part, you should be able to sign into your Microsoft account and not have to put in a windows activation key.)
