I currently have a sata ssd and hard drive and no m.2 installed. Can I just install an m.2 and reboot, or will I have to do other things for it to work?

Does your MB support M.2? Make sure its M.2 and not NVME...

MB Model?

You'll have to clone the SSD to the M.2 or install windows freshly onto the M.2.

I have a a320m motherboard, but I was just asking if I could just put in an m.2 and just keep windows on my sata

I would put windows on the M.2 as it has much faster R/W speeds.

If you aren't going to put windows on it you'll just have to initialize and partition the drive in Disk Management.

Some motherboards you have to enable the M.2 in the BIOS.
