    Help with clean install on new SSDrive


    Hi,

    I ask for advice on a clean install of Windows 10.

    I have recently upgraded from 7 to 10 - all ok but now

    Wish to stop using the existing hard drive (HDD) for 32 bit Windows 10 and instead install a new solid state drive (SSD) and load windows 10 64 bit onto that

    I have windows 7 Home Premium discs 32 bit and 64 bit (includes Service Pack 1)

    How do I do this?

    Thanks, Pete

    :)

  2. New SSD so hw to upgrade to Win 10 from 8.1 Pro

    I run 8.1 Pro - I'd like to upgrade to Win 10 using free offer.

    As part of the upgrade, I would like to install a new larger SSDrive.

    On the new drive I'd like to have a clean Win 10 install....

    Can someone recommend how best to approach this project.

    Thanks

    Clean install on new SSD drive, with Win 7 residing on old drive

    upgrade your windows 7, on the old drive first. make sure it is activated.

    then you can do a clean install on your new SSD and use the old disc for storage.

    You simply download the ISO from Microsoft site : Tech Bench
    From dropdown menu choose Windows 10 -> language and after that click on download button.
    Then you need to download program Rufus - Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way and make a bootable USB.

    Just right-click the ISO file and select Burn Disc Image, to create a bootable DVD
    Or double-click the ISO to Mount it - then copy all files within mounted ISO to a Formatted Fat32 USB Stick...

    No Need for Rufus as the Media is bootable and supports Legacy and UEFI Booting......

    Also since you are changing from x86 to x64 - you must reinstall the OS..
    There is no need to reinstall prior OS, just install windows 10
    and just skip (when asked) entering the product key.. And your good to go....

    If the computer only supports legacy booting and not UEFI, doesn't the partition on the USB flash drive need to be set as active? I agree 100% that there is no need for Rufus, I stopped using that program months ago after you convinced it was not necessary.

    All mine are active by default....

    I have never had to set active on any USB stick I've ever used...

    Not saying some do not come flagged as active, though...

    So Yes it does have to be an active partition..

    Hi..did that..created a Bootable DVD..just popped it in and clicked the "Setup" file and get This app cant run on our pc, to find a version for your pc check with the software publisher!
    Do you think its something to do with..at the mo the w10 version is 32bit whereas I ticked the 64 bit box when creating the bootable DVD..which of course is the reason for embarking on this - I want to change from 32 bit to 64 bit.

    In order to go from 32-bit to 64-bit you are going to have to boot the computer from the DVD and do a clean install.
