Dear Tech supporters,

My name is Julian and I have a request. I recently have bought a new ssd. A samsung 850 EVO 250 gb and I want to use it. But I dont know how. I want to put windows on it, and I tried but it didnt work because it wasnt registered. I bought this pc with windows on it already so I dont have a cd or usb with windows on it. So I want to put the opeting system on my ssd, and big games. And use harddrive for storage. But I only have a 32 gb usb. I dont knwo what to do. Can you help me please?

With kind regards

Julian

Is this s laptop or desktop?

You can either hook up your new drive if desktop or use a usb adapter to connect your SSD to the laptop and then use a cloning software to clone your hard drive to the new drive.

You can download a copy of Windows 10 and perform a new clean install of Windows 10 on the new SSD and then reinstall your third party programs and any files needed. I assume you will use your existing drive for either data storage and/or backups

Let us know how you would like to proceed and we can provide more details and guidance
