    Hi, you don't need a Microsoft account.
    As long as your original Windows 10 system was activated, you should be able to fit a new hard drive and Windows should activate.
    You may have to ring MSFT to get Windows activated.

    As charlatan1978 said, just install Windows 10 on the new hard drive, and your computer should activate automatically. I just did this yesterday on five computers. This is assuming your computer is a newer one with the product key embedded in the machine, and not an older one with a product key sticker.

    If you have a genuine windows 10 at your disposal there should be no problem at all activating it with the change in hard drive. There is no such issues with it so far.
