Reinstall windows

Yorick01
 Share

Hello I want to reinstall windows to a ssd. I have now only a SSHD but that's is just very slow. So please correct me if I do something wrong.

Install the ssd.

Disconnect the sshd.

Plug in a USB with windows.

Start up with the USB.

Run the installing.

Reconnect the sshd.

 

Do I also need to change anything in the bios?

Thx for the help!

Once you've installed windows to your SSD, you'll likely want to format the SSHD as you won't be needing that installation of windows, assuming you have your information properly backed up.

Outside of that, if you plan to keep windows on the SSHD, you may need to prioritize the SSD as the primary boot device.

Yes I want to format the sshd, but first just transfer some things to the ssd. So I need to prioritize the ssd in the bios to do that?

For future reference, quote somebody when you reply to them, that way they get a notification that you've added information/asked questions.

As a simple answer, yes. Your UEFI/BIOS may just boot from the last successful device, but it's not unheard of for it to just boot from whatever it's got. It's better just to prioritize the SSD so that you know that's what you'll boot from.

Sorry I forgot to quote.

And about the windows licences. You can just select that you are reinstalling windows and you will automatically get the license code?

In theory, yes.
In practice, it's a free-for-all. I've had a reinstall transfer license just fine, and I've had a reinstall require 45 minutes on hold waiting for MS support to fix the issue.

Is it OEM from a builder?

If so, they may have (had?) an upgrade program. You could try contacting them.

Outside of that, you can try contacting MS, but I make no promises you'll get anywhere.

It's a custom PC from a builder.

I have still the sticker wit the license and the DVD. (They have probably used a USB or something else. Because the DVD is unopened.)

If you have the original OEM license key for Windows 10, when you login with your Microsoft Account, it should attribute the two automatically and activate as a Digital license linked to your Microsoft Account. Mine looks something like this and yours should look the same;

If it doesn't then you may need to contact Microsoft Support.
