  1. Fresh Windows 10 install on new HDD


    Hi folks,


    I recently starting receiving a HDD error when booting suggesting my hard drive was due to fail.


    Trying to be proactive I purchased and installed a new HDD with more storage than original. Initially my goal was to clone the source drive to the new HDD using Macrium to prevent having to re-install anything. That said, I was not able to clone as errors would prevent the clone from completing. I am assuming that is related to the issues with the original source drive.


    Where do I go from here if I am looking to install the contents of the source drive to the new drive?


    Can I create a boot disk and install Windows 10 on new drive? And then copy entire contents of old drive to new drive?

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
