About to take delivery of an Ideapad 330s-15ikb. I have ordered a Samsung MZVLW256HEHP PM961 256GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD – OEM to replace the Optane.
My question is how best to migrate the OS, after I disable and remove the Optane.
I’ve read that the SSD is not supported by Samsung Magician migration tool as it is an OEM SSD.
1. Use Mini-tools Partition Manager (or similar) to Clone the HDD over to the SSD. If yes do I then need to change boot order in BIOS, or does the cloning operation make that change.
2. Create a Recovery USB, either by downloading from Lenovo or creating locally. Then use this to install fresh copy of factory OS on the SSD. Will the recovery USB allow me to do this? Will the fact that the factory OS expects to see Optane cause an issue?
3. Create a Windows 10 Install USB, use that for a fresh install on the SSD, then download drivers and utilities from Lenovo. If yes should I remove the HDD, or with the install ask which drive the OS should be installed on?
Solved! Go to Solution.
