Windows 10: How to migrate my OS to SSD without media creation tool?

    How to migrate my OS to SSD without media creation tool?


    I have hard drive and want to migrate my Windows 10 Pro to the SSD

    when I use Microsoft'e creation tool all goes well EXCEPT it updates me to the Creator version, which is exactly what I don't want. I want my 10 Pro build 1607

    Which brings up another question, isn't there a way now to stop the upgrade of the OS, I know the security upgrades occur, but I do not want Creator on the system.

    thanks

    Well, I can answer your first question. You migrate your Windows 10 Pro to the SSD from the HDD by copying all the partitions on the HDD to the SSD using a program such as MiniTool Partition Wizard or Macrium Reflect Free. You will have to adjust the size of the C: drive partition and/or any data partitions you have to match the new size available on the SSD.

    I can't answer your question about preventing the Creator's update. I downloaded it the first day it was available and upgraded all my computers manually.

    Just an UPDATE

    I tried the Macrium (Reflect) software and had no success, was the same as my EaseUS todo software
    however the MiniTool Partition Wizard performed like a champ, went in did and done if 10 mins

    LOL but now I am thinking maybe to drop 10 Pro all together and just go back to 7 Pro

    thanks again
