can i install a windows 10 hardrive from a hp laptop, to a windows 10 lenovo laptop?
My new Lenovo laptop has barely any memory on hard drive so I would like to move my larger(more memory) from my windows 10 hp laptop, is it possible?
I think there is almost a guaranteed chance you will have problems moving the drive.
You mention memory....yes you can move memory if it fits the specs....but not the drive.
I think it will have problems when it sees the Lenovo hardware.
Ideally you would want to do a clean install on the drive.

No. That will not work.
Your hard drive in the Lenovo is short on hard drive space? We'd need some specifics.
What size/type is the drive on the Lenovo?

I found these as I need more RAM as well https://eu.crucial.com/eur/en/ideapad-s130-14igm/CT13486484
The first item you list is a Crucial m.2 SSD, not "RAM".
Not going to work.
The second item is actual RAM, but I wouldn't count on it.
The included 4GB RAM does not seem to be removable, nor does it seem to have a second slot for more RAM.
No, that is a very limited laptop.
It uses a 32gb eMMC drive and no other options are available.
No ram upgrades are available.
It does have a microsd card reader which can increase your storage. Check compatibility, but a 64gb microsd card will likely work.
You could buy an external usb enclosure for your 1tb laptop drive and connect it that way.
