[SOLVED] Move M.2 SSD with installed operating system into another slot

Nov 24, 2021
Hi guys,

I need some urgent help.

I have an ASUS Motherboard with 3x M.2 (1x PCIe 4.0 and 2x PCIe 3.0)
A Kingston SA2000M8/1000G with PCIe 3.0 is installed on the slot for the PCIe 4.0 SSD. For whatever reason :unsure:

I just bought an additional PCIe 4.0 SSD but the PCIe slot is occupied with the Kingston PCIe 3.0 SSD.
Can I just put the Kingston SSD with the installed operating system into a free PCIe 3.0 slot?
Or does the operating system then no longer work.

I appreciate any quick help
