Getting a SSD

hi. im thinking about getting SSD for my laptop. My laptop has 2 hard drive slots. The question is if i install the SSD, can i just transfer all of windows from the hard drive to the SSD? or do i have to reformat?

  1. Yes you can! But you have to make a back-up, the process sometimes corrupts the image when you migrate the data from the HDD to the SSD. Also, please make sure your laptop supports it in it's current state, many laptops need updates to the firmware before an SSD can be used.

    Personally, I would do a fresh install, but that's just preference.

    Good luck,
  2. how do you know if you need a firmware update? this is my laptop
