Hi everybody, i got some problems with windows 10 recently, like the microsoft store doesn't work at all (error 0x80131500 ,i've already tried everyting, really) or that there are several updates to do on windows update but they doesent even start downloading, they just sais "Suspended download".
Now there is a thing that i haven't tested yet, in a few days i'm going to reinstall completely Windows 10 on a new MVME M.2 SSD (a completely different driver) using a USB for reinstalling windows.
Doing that all the errors should be fixed right?!!
I mean it's a completely new installation, it should work fine isn't it?!!

It should, yes.

when you put in nvme, remove the data cable from the other drives so when win 10 installs it only has 1 place to put the boot partition. If old install is there, it will just add itself to the boot partition on old drive.

Then when you know win 10 boots fine of nvme, re add data cables for other drives and make sure the old win 10 drive isn't showing in the boot list in bios. Or it will just try it.

You can remove the old windows/Program file folders from your old drive by doing this on new install - not now - https://superuser.com/questions/915173/delete-old-windows-program-files-from-second-drive

another easier way to get rid of them is format the 2nd drive
