  1. Installing Windows on a new M.2 without loosing everything


    Hello!
    I recently purchased a 1TB M.2 Drive. I'm hoping there is a way to install windows on to the new drive with out have wipe my computer. I'm not in jeopardy of losing everything, its all backed up. I'm just wondering if there is any way to freshly install windows on to the new drive and then maybe restore the PC from a back up or something like that so that I don't have to reinstall everything and start from scratch.

    :)

    Yes, I do think that is my problem, but I couldn't find a way to remedy it. Sorry for the screenshot being in Hungarian, if you need I can translate it. And don't mind the 500 MB partition, I tried to do a fix from a similar thread which suggested creating it, but later steps didn't prove successful.
