  1. Change HDD to SSD and windows 10 reinstall on himself


    hi,

    I don't understand what append to my PC.
    I have a very slow laptop so i decided to change the HDD to SSD.
    I'm a little brutal, i just take away the HDD and change it to SSD (no cloning).

    So i reboot my PC and... Windows 10 re-install on himself.
    I have (in my knowledge) no other HDD.

    That makes no sense.
    Can you explain to me, please , what append ?

    I am lost

    P.S : sorry for my poor English, i am french

    :)

  3. SSD failure and Windows 10 reinstall. How to restore apps from HDD.

    My Acer desktop computer originally had a 16 GB SSD that held the Windows 10 installation (upgraded from Windows 8). It also has a 2 TB HDD that contains all other applications and files. The original SSD recently failed, preventing me from booting, so I
    replaced the SSD with a SanDisk 128 GB model. I then reinstalled Windows 10 on the new SSD using the Microsoft Media Creation Tool. While I was performing the installation, I disconnected the HDD to ensure I didn't accidentally overwrite anything there.

    My question now is, how do I get the new installation of Windows (on the new SSD) to recognize the applications I had installed on the HDD? I can use File Explorer to browse the files and applications stored there, but Windows obviously no longer has any
    of the apps registered as being installed. The SSD is now listed as the (CChange HDD to SSD and windows 10 reinstall on himself :) drive and the HDD is listed as the (DChange HDD to SSD and windows 10 reinstall on himself :) drive. Before, the HDD was (CChange HDD to SSD and windows 10 reinstall on himself :) and the SSD was the (XChange HDD to SSD and windows 10 reinstall on himself :) drive.

    Thanks,

    Tim

    Reinstalling windows 10 on SSD

    Hi Ralph,

    Regarding your concern about changing the hard drive, you can definitely reinstall Windows 10 and activate it after changing your HDD to SSD. We suggest that you

    back up your files
    in your SSD. You can use the Windows 10 USB, you can also follow the steps provided by
    Andre Da Costa in this
    forum article
    . This will give you steps on how to install Windows using media creation tool or directly using your web browser.
