  1. Problems installing W10 to a clean/new SSD.


    So i just bought a bigger SSD to install w10 on and the installer runs fine right up until the first restart. Computer restarts and the W10 installer is back at the start where I select the language. Im installing from an USB boot stick which I made with microsofts own tool. When i go back to the installer and look at the SSD i just tried installing to theres 8gb of space used so atleast the installer does something. Should I pull the USB stick from the comp prior to the restart or something?


    Got it working i just had to remove the USB then reboot. Problem solved.

    :)

    download Windows 10 upgrade to dvd

    Right... but how do I get the W10 clean install on the new SSD after it is on the old disk drive ? I want to take out the disk drive and clean install it on the new SSD . Do you mean the option to clean install on the SSD will be available if both drives
    are in during the upgrade ? Then I can remove the old drive and it will then boot with W10 on the SSD?

    windows 10 clean install product key

    Upgrade from W7 to W10 on old HDD and clean install on new SSD?

    I just purchased a new dell computer with Windows 7 Pro installed on a HDD.

    I want to change the HDD to a SSD and upgrade from W7 to W10.

    I want to do a clean install of W10 on the new SSD and install the appropriate device drivers.

    It is my understanding that before I do a clean install on an empty drive I first need to upgrade to Windows 10 from an activated install of Windows 7, then when I do the clean install I can leave the product key blank and the clean install will still activate
    successfully?

    My question has to do with the new SSD. The Dell computer is brand new .
    Can I do the Window 7 to Windows 10 upgrade on the old drive HDD and then put in the new SSD and do a clean install, or do I need to change the HDD to the SSD before doing the upgrade? which would then require than wiping the new SSD to do a clean install?

    I would like to save the step of copying the Dell HDD image to the new SSD prior doing the upgrade, but I'm concerned that by upgrading on one drive and than trying to auto-activate on a new drive might result in an activation issue.
