Going from SATA to NVMe is sometimes problematic.Current is Crucial MX500 SSD and the M.2 is a Adata XPG SX6000 Pro, both 500GB. Current free space on SSD is 416gb of 465gb.
If its a brand new build and install...blow off the clone, and just do a fresh install on the SSD.thank you, i'll give it a try and let you know how i get on. and yes, nothing much on the ssd as it's a new pc build.
So, probably easier to just unplug the ssd, insert the m.2, then install windows 10 on to it from a usb. change the m.2 to ''boot first'' in the bios, check to see if it is all running ok, then reconnect the ssd and format it to wipe it and just use it as storage?..............................if that makes sense?If its a brand new build and install...blow off the clone, and just do a fresh install on the SSD.
Guaranteed to work.

You can't clone "the operating system and a few programs"Hi, I am going to do the same thing with my new system. I will have a 1tb ssd with the operating system on it. If I have the M.2 drive plugged into the motherboard, should I clone the operating system and a few programs to the M.2 or like you said, just install Windows 10 on it? I have only done a cloning operation once on this computer. The new one plus I don't even have the m.2 drive yet, just curious about having them both plugged into the system at the same time and I would probably have to mess around with the boot system. I would probably like to make the M.2 the boot drive and the original ssd as a storage drive.
By the way, a big difference in playing games from one drive to another? SSD vs M.2?
Thanks, good thread
