    Laptop Repair and Upgrade

    HP Pavilion 15p Note Book, Win 10 Home, version 15063. Laptop is about 5-6 years old, outwardly not a scratch on it, like new, my grand daughter wants to give it to her best friend's little girl who is coming up to 7. There are some issues which I can resolve one of them being one of the USB ports is moving around, hopefully a tear down and soldering back to the board will resolve this. All of the above is relatively easy but I would like to undertake a HDD upgrade. This laptop came with a CD/DVD drive, I would like to remove the existing 1TB HDD and install it into the optical drive to be used as storage/back ups but it has the existing OS on it. I would like to install a 250gb SSD and have the OS on that. I can use Macrium. Aomei or EaseUs but my understanding is I can't clone from a larger HDD capacity to a smaller SSD capacity. Which is the best way forward? Instead of a clone would creating a mirror image of the existing OS be a better option to go from large HDD to smaller SSD? There is practically nothing on the existing HDD save for the OS.

    I would try the following steps in order:

    1. Remove the laptop main battery for a few minutes - may reset something
    2. Load BIOS defaults
    3. Install Macrium Reflect Free on another PC, create a Reflect USB repair disk then use that disk to repair your laptop
    4. Recover from backup if you have one
    5. Perform a Windows 10 repair install - see instructions on this forum
