  1. Need to move Windows 10 to new hard disk with drivers


    Hi everyone,

    I have a custom-built windows machine that I now need to sell. It has a number of different components, and the original driver CD's are no longer with me. I would like to move the installation to a new hard disk that I have bought for this purpose (in order to not pass on my old drive to a stranger, even if I've wiped it clean with Window's Restore tool).

    I know that I can do a clean install of Windows with a bootable USB that can be made here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    But doing this doesn't include all of my drivers, so that's a no go. Can I easily add drivers to the bootable USB?

    Thanks!
    David

    :)

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .

    Hard disk partition not showing up.

    Hi Muhammad,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    This can happen if the Hard-disk drivers are not up-to date. I would suggest you to update the hard disk drivers first. To update the drivers, please follow the steps mentioned below:

    1. Open Device manager.
    2. Then Expand “Disk drives”.
    3. Then Right click on the Hard-disk listed under this category.
    4. Then click on Update drivers.
    5. Alternatively you can also try to update the drivers from manufacturer’s website.

    Once the hard-disk drivers are updated, you will need to allocate the last partition (it is not allocated according to the screenshot) and you will be able to view the partition.



    Also note that sometimes the hard disk partitions/drives might be hidden in This PC or My Computer window due to a Registry key. If a DWORD with the name NoViewOnDrive or NoDrives is present under following key in Registry Editor:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Policies\Explorer

    Delete the DWORD and your drives will become visible in My Computer window.



    Hope this helps.

    Need to move Windows 10 to new hard disk with drivers

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
