  2. Transfer OS to SATA SSD from HDD

    Hello everyone,

    I have old PC with system configuration as below:

    Processor-Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.93GHz

    RAM:2GB

    MotherBoard:Asus P5kpl-am/ps

    HDD:WD 512GB

    No Graphics Card,Intel stock cooler.

    Recnetly I have upgraded the PC from windows 7 professional (32bit) to Windows 10 Pro so I have digital license only.After up-gradation I am not able to use edge,Microsoft Store since then I have asked for solution but it did not workout.

    Just gave these information just to give any help for current question that I am about to ask.

    "The system is very slow" so I am thinking of upgrading to SATA SSD from the current HDD so I want to know -

    1.how can I transfer my os which is present currently in HDD to SSD.

    2.Will I get any performance increase I am asking although I know that performance will increse.

    3.Will there be any chance that I have to enter activation key for my OS during any step on upgradation. As I do not have any activation key for Windows 10 what have was for Windows 7.

    Any help any suggestion will be very helpful for my adventure on becoming a Geeky!.

    Thanks in advance for the response.

  3. Transfer my OS to SSD?

    Hello Juliana,

    I’m sorry to say but Microsoft doesn’t provide the option to transfer only OS from HDD to SSD. However I can recommend the workaround. Please do a clean install on SSD. After that SSD will get the active partition. It will also help you to recover your computer
    if it crashes in the future.

    Before you start doing a clean installation make sure you have backups of all the important information you have on the PC. After the clean install you will be able to restore your information on the HDD.

    Please, follow the steps to do a clean install:

    Prepare a USB/DVD. Refer to the support article provided by PaulSey. You can also watch a video on this page

    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/for...

    After that please refer to the steps provided by PaulSey in his article on How to Clean Install Windows 10 on a PC Step-by-Step Guide to install the Windows 10 on your SSD.

    Post me back, if you need further assistance.
