Legion Y520 Want to move Windows 10 to newly installed SSD. Help?

Hi all, I have a Legion Y520, and I want to move my Winows 10 from the HDD to a newly installed blank SSD. Is there a standard procedure for this? The standard HDD on this laptop is just too slow to be used as a boot drive but I really don't want to mess up moving Windows 10 over.

 

The SSD I bought is a Samsung NVMe 960 EVO M.2, if that matters. Thanks for your help!

Hi Regomar!

 

Welcome to the community forums.

 

There are two options for you to do that. You can migrate or clone the system image from the HDD to your new SSD or you can perform a Clean Install directly to your SSD drive. You can check Microsoft forums for instructions on "How to Migrate Windows 10 to SSD".
