Hi, so i built my PC having only a 1TB hard drive so yesterday i bought a 256gb SSD.

My question is can I and how do transfer ONLY my windows 10 OS from the HDD to the SSD?
*and I'm saying only the windows OS cuz currently taking 280gb of space (I have csgo and R6 so i can't move all the files from the HDD).

Also, how do I delete the windows OS from the HDD after I migrate whilst keeping the programs and games installed on the HDD?

to make it simpler here's a gram to show you what I want to do :
Move Windows from HDD to SSD > Delete Windows from HDD > Store everything else in the HDD (including my current files)

Thanks in advance.

In addition:
"Also, how do I delete the windows OS from the HDD after I migrate whilst keeping the programs and games installed on the HDD? "

This also would not work.
Even if you could migrate "only the OS" (you can't)...you also can't use the applications from the old install.
Thank you.
