I have an Inspiron 2-in-1 13.3" with a Samsung pm871b 256 GB SSD. I've purchased a Samsung - 970 EVO Plus 1TB to replace the SSD. I also purchased a USB external enclosure to use when cloning the drive. The instructions in Samsung's Migration App state that the Samsung NVMe Driver must be installed onto the 970 first. The install instructions for the Samsung NVMeDriver state that the drive must be in the slot on the mbd in order to install the driver.

Do I need to
  1. Put the 871 into the USB enclosure
  2. Install the 970 onto the mbd
  3. Boot from USB
  4. Install the drivers
  5. Clone
I don't do much hardware maintenance so I want to confirm this before making a mistake.

Thanks.
