    Hello
    Currently on my pc I have two hdd disks, of which one is installed legal activated windows 10. Recently, I bought an SSD on which I would like to install Windows 10. And here are my doubts about how to do it. Can I install clean windows 10 on this ssd after installing the ssd drive, keep working on windows 10 on the hdd and then choose it as the system BIOS in the BIOS?
    Please, confirm or deny my reasoning because I have to take care of it during the weekend.
    Of course, the current hdd drive with Windows I would like to format to make it for a multimedia magazine.

    I use SSD 120 GB as systemic in a laptop. The hardware starts quickly. It works quickly. By the time, however. After many people digging in the system, he starts to mulch. So in a while, the installation again. I have data on an external drive.

    It seems to me that you could try to clone. I bet you would have a problem, though I may be wrong. So you have to install a clean system on SSD and then setup in BIOS, but maybe other more experienced will also talk.

    I have reviewed some opinions and generally people do not complain. Maybe you have a defective drive that you have. I acquired this Good Ram Iridium Pro 240. It's supposed to be good. A lot of positives.

    Ok, if someone knew about the installation, I ask for info.

    Hello
    If you do not have experience, it is best to disconnect discs and connect only SSD. Remember to set the boot in UEFI mode in bios. After the installation is complete, reconnect the disc drives and format them. If the system was original then during installation on the key question you can click "I do not have a key" and continue the installation. The system should activate itself.

    I have extensive experience with ssd disks. Recently, there were problems with sandisk discs that I liked so much ... but a month ago there was a faulty series that did not hold the parameters of the disk speed.

    I recommend doing disc diagnostics even with the simple program that I used HDTune.
    Of course, disk diagnostics is a separate topic, I will not write about it here.
    The first photo of the ssd disk with problems and the second one is a good ssd disk.
    Now I have changed to a goodx cx300, I have several of them and there were no problems yet.

    As for the installation of the system on the SSD drive, it also has no problems, it is enough in the installer to indicate the disk on which the system is to be installed and that's all.
    The installation runs from media such as cdrom or usb at the startup of the computer, adjusting the settings in the bios so it is not possible as a colleague wrote to install the system from windows 10 if I understood correctly. In bios, we also choose the boot option tab which the drive should start first

    It is possible that the fault lies after a large amount of software that I have installed. It is better for me to dump the image of a clean system once in a while, than to combine with the settings. But I'll check, maybe it's actually a hard disk ...

    @keseszel - and how much free space do you have on this disk? Filled SSDs - especially those of poor quality - can significantly slow down.
