    Hi. My new laptop will arrive soon. But the laptop comes with no operating system(it’s called dos). The laptop has a m.2 pcie nvme slot which i can add if i want to. So, i bought a samsung evo 960 pcie ssd. What i want to ask is can i straight away install windows 10 pro 64bit by using my samsung evo 960? Or i need to install windows 10 by using my usb(i’ve download the windows 10 setup files from official website).
    I want to boot my laptop using my samsung ssd since it’s much faster compared to hdd.
    Please help. Thanks

    What's the brand name and model name and exact model number of your new laptop?

    If your new laptop comes with FreeDOS and you plan to install Windows 10 Pro 64-bit in it, how do you plan to activate it and make it legal?

    I'm guessing you purchased a Lenovo Legion Y520 model laptop.
    From what I can determine from the U.S. site, that model laptop comes with Windows 10 64-bit, so I'm a bit surprised yours comes with FreeDOS.
    What country did you purchase it in?
