    Thanks for all the guidance. Very helpful!

    chrunos, you said, "And then upgrade Windows 7 to Windows 10 on SSD. If anything goes wrong with windows 10, you still have the windows 7 on your hard drive." Please confirm that this is a typo as I only have 8.1. If not a typo, please elaborate. Thanks.
    I think that is a typo. Seems, he was to promote that specific link.

    If you've not upgraded yet you could consider taking the activation token from your existing 8.1 and then just removing you old drive and doing a clean install on the SSD, Clean Install Windows 10 Directly without having to Upgrade First - Windows 10 Forums
