So you will need to get a cloning tool firstly and clone it across. the method will change with with different software. ( there are lots of free versions available)

Then you will need to make sure in your bios that the new m.2 is selected as your primary boot drive.

Also if you have a SATA mechanical hard drive you may need to change the port its plugged in to (i had to though not entirely sure why).

finally boot to the new dive a few times to make sure its all correct then your can do with your old drive as you please.

 

THIS IS A REALLY CUT DOWN INSTRUCTION SET, FOLLLOW WHAT THE CLONING SOFTWARE SAYS AS IT MIGHT DIFFER FROM WHAT I HAVE SAID

also how many m.2 slots do you have. if you only have one you might need a way to connect though a different method.

@Tscanivel you should be fine to put in into the other slot. check you mobo manual to see if one is a priority slot over the other as they can be.

 

then you should just clone then erase the old drive and you should be good.
