Windows from hdd to ssd

Just now, IgnaBilli official said:

Yes only Windows 

I personally would recommend just reinstalling windows to the SSD, then once it's installed, deleting the windows folder on the hard drive, or leaving it as a failsafe. 

A fresh install of windows on an SSD will be much faster then a cloned copy from the hard drive.

You can find a download link for windows 10 on microsoft's website.

Unplug your HDD before you start installing.


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

In that case, you will have to create a backup of everything on your disk. Then, wipe it clean. Unplug the hdd from the mobo. Next, install your SSD ONLY. Install windows on that ssd. Once that is done, connect the hdd back to the mobo. Next, watch this video and follow what linus does to set your hdd up. then, put your files back where they were.
