  1. Hi, Before you migrate Windows 10 from your HDD to SSD, please note the disk space of SSD can't be smaller than the used disk space of the source disk. And then you can choose the easiest way to clone tools to transfer. Such as using MiniTool Partition Wizard or MiniTool ShadowMaker. You can access here to find the tool: http://minitool.com/ One more thing that you can do is to convert your SSD disk to MBR or GPT - exact the same as your current system disk, which will allow you to effortlessly boot system after cloning Windows system.
  2. This is a great read, very informative

    Would my drive be dying?

    It no seems like the physical problem. I suggest you download disk test tools like CrystalDiskInfo or HD Tune to test it.
  4. Windows Movie maker is no longer available for download from Microsoft. But I fond many computer companies can download it, I want to choose the MiniTool software download after a few comparisons. Is it safe to download from MiniTool? https://www.minitool.com/moviemaker/movie-maker-alternative.html https://www.minitool.com/moviemaker/windows-movie-maker.html

    SSD not showing up (PC not detecting it)

    Just right click on the main display bar for the SSD drive in device manager and select format drive. Select the type of disk, Basic, or the format type of the disk NTFS or GPT. Once done. Right click on the small window that says disk one, and check to see if the drive is online. If not, simply select the online option for the drive from the pull down menu when right clicking on the Disk window with the mouse. Restart the system, and the SSD drive will then show in windows file explorer. Of course, you can try to use 3rd party tool complete this operation which is much easier, like as MiniTool partition wizard, and then clone your current os drive to your SSD can be used it. There is an article for Quick Fix "SSD Not Showing up" in Windows 10 without Data Loss You can follow it, hope that helps.

    Question about partition

    I'm glad that your problem has been solved. Just reinstalls the OS, you need to back up the important files in advance. BTW, Would you mind telling me more about convert failure information when you using MiniTool? Recently I just bought it, and I want to install the double OS on my new computer in order to improve my game performance. Thank you.

    SSD Boot Drive Plan

    View your steps information, and if everything is correct, it will be an OK plan, but when you referring to moving Windows 10 to SSD, you need to note the disk space of SSD can't be smaller than the used disk space of the source disk. And then run the MiniTool Partition, please prepare the SSD as the destination disk and connect it to your computer. Then you see all hard drives in your PC will be listed here. Select "Migrate OS to SSD/HD" in the toolbar. There are two migration modes see you can. If you would like to replace the system disk with SSD, choose the first mode. If you only want to copy the system required partitions, the second mode is suitable Select a target disk to migrate Windows 10 to. you know all the data of the destination disk will be deleted during the migration. Thus, please make sure the disk doesn't contain important files. Hope that helps.

    Hard Drive Transferring.

    just attach your old HD to any of the available SATA ports. if your pc supports a secondary drive. you can buy a SATA to USB 3 adapter bay to connect to your pc. Then open disk manager (press winkey+xk). go to your old drive, and transfer your useful data to your new hard drive on your new PC and keep system partition on your old hard drive, Or you can use free 3rd party tools like Minitool partition to complete this operation, Good luck.

    Need help with an old hard drive

    You could install the old hard drive to your computer, but you should Go to BIOS and set your current drive as default boot drive.

    SSD boot order

    You can try to install some free disk cloning utility such as MinTool ShadowMaker (there are many others as well) when you transferred your old HDD. Use it to clone your current C drive to your new SSD. Absolutely make sure that you also clone "hidden" (system) partitions, else the drive won't boot. Of course, you don't have to clone data partition from current HDD. Unplug your HDD (physically) and boot by only using SSD. Make sure it can boot and that stuff works. Plug your HDD back in. Go to BIOS and set your SSD as default boot drive.

    Accidental quick formatting

    If your data not more than 1GB, you can use Minitool power data recovery free edition: https://www.minitool.com/data-recovery-software/free-for-windows.html
  14. Hello. Have you solved your problem? I think you have to change your password before you can login. what's the OS?. If you use a Microsoft account, you can change the password on account.live.com/password/reset. If you use a local account, you have to change the password with a bootable USB flash drive or Minitool partition wizard you mentioned. If this method doesn't solve your problem, maybe you can try to remove the NZXT CAM software or download it from the official website and reinstall.
