Just fresh install, moving OS usually comes with problems. Some functions not working, driver crashes etc.

 

If you just want to keep your data, you can plug in all the drives and boot with the new drive directly. Just use File Explorer to navigate to the old drives and get to the old files.

You must go to Crucial support page,  download the software for it (there must be an option to migrate from the old drive to this one the OS), Samsung has it.

And update the firmware first if it is not up to date.

If the new SSD is large enough to fit all the data from the old drive, then use something like Norton GHOST. Fantastic program. There are many programs like it, Clonezilla, etc. but I am most comfortable with GHOST.

 

If the old drive is too large, then you can't move it over with cloning software, and you must start from scratch.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

There is a program provided by Crucial, its called "Acronis True Image 2015", altho im not sure if this is the way to go, since all of my data will not fit onto the drive. ever had any experience with said Soft?

I know the software, it will do the job but if your old drive is too large to fit on the new drive, you can't use it.

Best suggestion:

Remove old drive from system

Install Windows (or your OS of choice) on the SSD, Patch and ensure all drivers are good.

Turn off PC, install old drive as a slave.

Turn on PC, boot to new install of Windows, copy/move what you want to to SSD, use old drive as data backup/data copy/games install/etc.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds
