    moving OS's HDD to HDD

    I have a 2.5" HDD that contains 2 OSes, WinXP and Ubuntu. I move them to a 3.5" HDD. Is there a way to move both OSes from one HDD to another HDD? Or do I have to reinstall both OSes again?

    By taking sometime giving yourself permission to deletes files as suggested below. Try create a partition or use another drive to place the info you want to keep. Then format the drive and put your info back.

    Move Windows 10 from installed hdd to installed ssd

    If you want to move it from hard disk, system image or cloning would be your options:

    Choose system image if the SSD is equal in size or larger than hard disk:


    Choose cloning if its not:

    OR

    You can remove the hard disk, reinstall Windows 10 directly to SSD, reattach the hard drive and format it.
