Whats the best way to move over from a HDD to a SSD if both have different windows installed and files on them, sorry for the long title
1. Why 2 OS's?
2. Which OS's?
3. What do you want the end state to be? Which OS, which drive, etc...
I want to be on just one OS but heres the thing. The SSD is currently in my laptop, 240gb that I got recently with windows 7 x64 installed on it and all the laptop drivers.
The HDD is currently in my desktop that I only got up and running recently. The computer itself is quite old but it runs csgo at 200fps so im happy
. It also has windows 7 but for some reason I accidentally installed windows 7 x32 on it (the processor supports x64 I checked, I must have been half asleep when doing the install) but the effort of a new install is too much.
The end state is a config where I have the SSD running windows 7 x64 on my desktop, while also using the HDD for file storage like movies, music and sample libraries.
So what should I do? Pop the ssd into my desktop, format it and install windows 7 on it from scratch x64?
The ideal solution would be without any formatting, since both drives have files on them. I'm pretty sure I partitioned the drives so that windows has its own partition on both of them if that helps.
