My suggestion for you would be:

1) Get the free Macrium Reflect and take a full partition and system image of your existing drive onto your data drive.

2) Put your new drive in place and boot up with your (already prepared) USB Windows Media Creation disk and install Windows on it. Put Macrium Reflect on it and restore from your saved image.

Why install Windows? Just build the Macrium "rescue media" tool onto a USB drive and boot from it to restore the backup you made.

Indeed, good point.  I doubt that I ever installed a fresh Windows to merely then overwrite it.
