    How to change boot drive from hdd to ssd?

    One of the latest microsoft updates crashed my computer. As a result I had to get windows reinstalled in the repair shop. When I got my computer (laptop) back, I found that windows had been reinstalled on my hdd, not my ssd. I am looking to fix this now.

    I've already cloned windows on to the ssd. I've been following the steps in other tutorials that tell me I have to change the boot option in the BIOS at startup. However, when I go to boot priorities, the ssd does not appear. When looking under Hard disk
    drive BBS priorities, it also does not appear; the only option that appears is my hard drive. I feel like I maybe missed a step somewhere; am I supposed to be able to go straight from cloning to be able to select the drive in BIOS?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    HDD to SSD

    I don't understand why you changed the boot order in your BIOS.

    When you image or clone an HDD, and restore the image or clone to an SSD, you've got an identical copy of your computer on a different hard drive. Nothing has changed, really. So the next step is to remove the HDD from your computer and replace it with the
    SSD, then carry on as normal.

    Changing from HDD to SSD on a laptop

    Hi, so I changed the HDD in my laptop that is running windows 10 (free upgrade from 8) to an SSD and I want to transfer my license to the SSD. Is that possible and can I get the product key for my laptop?
