Windows 7 on HD windows 10 on SSD RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I currently have Windows 7 installed on my HD. The start time just takes to long. I would like to install Windows 10 on my SSD. 

    Is there a way I can do this so all my data is migrated correctly? 

    Thank you.

  • Win 10 is an upgrade that must be started from within a qualifying OS.  After you upgrade you can THEN do a clean install where ever you like

    As ZigZag indicated, the Windows 10 can be upgraded from a qualifying OS.
    To replace the hard drive, we can refer to the following link without performing a reinstallation.
