    Moving Windows 10 to an SSD from HDD


    So I'm upgrading my current PC replacing mobo, cpu, ram, and adding an m.2 ssd but I would like to transfer windows 10, and only windows 10 to the ssd to be the boot drive and game storage device while keeping the hdd and what's on it intact, what would be the best way to go about doing this?

    :)

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