Question

Windows 10/solid state drive install

hi, am new to the forum. Hoping you can help/suggest a solution to the following;

I am having a solid state drive installed and the tech wanted to know if I could download a "clean" copy of windows 10, the OS I'm using.
My question is; can I request another link to download another windows 10 OS from MS, or do you think copying all of the data from current hard drive to the SSD will impede the performance of my system?

A lot more work for some machines.

A clean install means you know what drivers and apps are needed for this PC.

That said, you can download Windows 10 and it does activate if you activated on this machine before.

Move Windows 10 to SSD

In reply to: Windows 10/solid state drive install

You have already download a clean copy of Windows 10, and you are using this Windows 10 operating system. The SSD is a better storage drive. It records the data with the chips. Using SSD would improve the performance of the whole computer, but you don't need to another link to download another Windows 10 OS from MS. It is waste time. The more effective way is to clone the hard disk to an SSD.
