  1. Upgrading laptop m.2 SSD with an NVMe drive and have a question


    My HP laptop came with a 128GB m.2 SSD that is unfortunately running out of space. I am planning to replace it with a 512GB NVMe drive. I thought about trying to clone the current drive to the new one, but that seems like more work than I'm willing to put in. I'd rather just remove the old drive, install the new one, then perform a clean windows 10 installation.

    Here's my question -- Will there be any Windows 10 activation issues? The copy of Windows 10 Home on this laptop is activated with a digital license linked to my Microsoft account. When I perform a clean install with the new NVMe drive, can I simply log into my Windows account and my digital license will transfer without issue? I am not sure if Windows ties my digital license to the exact hardware configuration of my laptop, or if it will know that it's the same laptop with a new drive and tie my digital license to it without issue. Thoughts?

  3. about intel optane memory + NVMe™ M.2 SSD

    nitially

    intel optane memory M10(16,32,64gb)PCIe NVMe M.2 3.0x2 was for accelerating 2.5'SATA mechanical HDD regardless of which generation intel CPUs.

    also note :

    not talking about Intel® Optane™ Memory H10 with Solid State Storage (32gb+1tb, 32gb+512gb ,16gb+256gb)PCIe NVMe3.0x4 that comes as a single m.2 drive which is mounted on single m.2 slot

    but now why

    intel optane memory M15(16,32,64gb)(PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4)is-- paired with --PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSDs {which is mounted on two differnt m.2 slots on 7th ,8th and 9th gen intel CPUs}

    what is the purpose

    ex: 512 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD + Intel® Optane™ memory 32 GB on (Intel® Core™ i7 9750H) seen from HPs Omen X 2S - 15 Gaming Laptop.

    Upgrading laptop m.2 SSD with an NVMe drive and have a question

    Migrating Windows 10 from m.2 sata to new pcie nvme ssd

    Hello all,

    I'm going to upgrade my current m.2 sata 128gb to a m.2 pcie nvme 480gb and have questions about migrating Windows over. From my understanding since i have a laptop and cant connect both drives at the same time and pcie nvme isnt supported externally I was
    going to try and create a restore disk of my current drive and then image it to my new drive. Will this work?

    Again my process will be, create rescue disk and image to usb, power down and swap drives, enable usb boot to my usb and power on, run the rescue disk and image to my new pcie nvme ssd.

    Does anyone see problems with this? Do I need a large usb or will 32gb work for a 128gb ssd?
