How do I install Windows 10 onto a second drive in UEFI format, without deleting my current disk contents on my old hard-drive
You all seem really helpful, so thought I'd throw in a bit of a curve-ball which has gotten me running in circles over the last day or so.
I have recently bought a new SSHD. My old hard-drive was relatively cheap a few years ago, and runs on MBR - my new drive can run on GPT (UEFI) which is obviously faster, more reliable and therefore preferable! I want to get the absolute most that I can out of my new drive!
Cloning the current contents of my disk simply writes it in MBR, and thus doesn't give me the full benefits of a Windows UEFI install. Basically, I want to install a fresh copy of Windows 10, onto my new SSHD drive, without having to delete the entire contents of my old drive.
I don't have a Windows 10 CD (I upgraded from Windows 7). Is there any way of doing this?
Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated, Thanks, Best, Lawrence.
