    Windows10 1903 upgrade changed my system drive from SSD to an old spinner


    Hi,

    Upgraded to Windows 10 1903 April.

    I had a Samsung 970EVO SSD as C: system drive and an older WD HDD as D: with an older Windows 10 install, pictures, movies, etc.


    After the upgrade my SSD became A: and my HDD became C: and system drive.

    It seems that Windows upgraded the older instance and now my computer boots and runs from the old HDD, which stays at 100% usage.


    What can I do?

    :)

  3. Upgrading laptop hard drive to ssd

    I'm upgrading my old Asus Q200e laptop's hard drive to a PNY SSD http://www.pny.com/ssd-cs2111?sku=SSD7CS2111-240-RB , following this tutorial. (As an aside, I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 due to a slight slowdown in boot times.) Aside from using different products than the ones listed in the tutorial, I've followed every step to the letter.

    However, when I swapped out the HDD with the SSD, the computer does not recognize the new SSD as the boot drive. Instead, upon turning on the machine, the system goes into a strange BIOS-esque utility called "Aptio Setup Utility" that doesn't list the SSD at all. It does, however, list the boot manager from the old HDD I have plugged into a hard drive USB enclosure. I've tried looking up the answer online to no avail.

    Any help at all would be appreciated.

    Windows10 1903 upgrade changed my system drive from SSD to an old spinner

    Upgrading HP SSD drive on HP 750-524

    I purchased an HP Envy tower with a 128Gb SSD which is where Windows is installed, I have purchased a new 1TB SSD drive that I would like to replace the 128 GB drive with. My machine did not come with the Windows 10 Media, what steps do I need to take before
    I install the new drive and install windows.

    • Where do I get the Windows 10 install
    • What steps are needed to create an Install disk
    • Do I have to deactivate my old install before removing the old drive.
    Please let me know if there are any other considerations.

    Best Regards,

    Wes
