    Installing W10 on a new SSD

    If you have a way of connecting the SSD externally you can use something like EaseUS ToDoBackup and clone you total HHD to the SSD then install the SSD.

  3. How do install my copy of Windows 10 on an SSD that I will then swap for the internal SSD in my Dell Laptop?

    Let me clarify:

    I have gone through downloading the iso of Windows 10 installer and started the installation process right up to where it begins to restart, at which point I have quit because it never asks for an installation target and gives every sign that it is going
    to wipe my internal SSD and install there.

    I may be wrong but do not want to risk it wiping my internal drive, before I have had a chance to set up my external SSD as the boot drive.

    My issue, which you have not addressed is installing a bootable version of Windows 10 on the external SSD (in a USB case) which I then propose to boot off to check it works before installing that external SSD internally into my Dell Inspiron 11.

    This is a trivial exercise for OSX. Is it, or is it not possible with Windows? If so what are the exact steps?
