    SSD Upgrade


    I have a Dell laptop that was preloaded with Win10. I'm getting ready to upgrade from the 1TB HDD to a 500GB SSD. What is the best way to migrate (or install) Win10 to the new SSD?

    Thanks!

    Down load Macrium Reflect free from internet on your dell, using external enclosure and clone your dell to SSD.
    Install the SSD to your dell, that should do it.
    If you want to clean install win 10, download win 10 iso from microsoft creation tool called media creation tool on a thumb drive, and clean install OS to your dell.

    Just make sure you transfer all partitions.

    I've never heard of Macrium Reflect. Thank you so much! I'm coming back from Apple so cloning drives is not unfamiliar to me at all! Thank you again!

    If you are willing to do a clean install, Windows 10 will let you do so. I bought an HP laptop that came with an HDD, so after my Windows 10 upgrade went through, I pulled the HDD, installed an SSD, and performed a clean install of Windows 10. Haven't looked back since.

    Hi I'm in the process of a similar upgrade and have a question. New HP Envy that has windows 10 installed. I have a new SDD that I'm going to install. I'd rather do a clean install vs cloning the HDD. Which tutorial do you recommend? I don't think I have a product key? Will I be able to connect to the net and have windows automatically see that it's valid? Sorry for the noob Qs...

    If your current Windows 10 is showing as activated, then you won't have any trouble with a clean install activating, either. I would have at least the chipset and network drivers downloaded to a USB flash drive first, so you can easily reconnect to the Internet after the clean install.
