Move Full Windows 10 To New SSD

My buddy has a refurbished laptop that has a failing HDD, so he bought a new SSD to replacement. What I want to know is if he starts from scratch and installs Windows 10 onto the new SSD how is he suppose to get the full version without having a USB with Windows 10?

What you do to install windows on an ssd in a new computer is you put the windows 10 installation media onto the usb then open that on the laptop while using the ssd as the main drive. Then with the installation media you can install w10 on the ssd. You can later configure the hard drive as the storage drive and stuff.
