Install SSD on HP desktop

I've added a solid state drive to my desktop HP TPC-W032-SF, which also goes by Slimline 270-p0xx, all alone by myself. The procedure of upgrading M.2 SSD is easy to be grabbed, and hiring a technician does not necessitate.

The first step is the insertion of an M.2 SSD. Before this, locating the socket 3 which matches M.2 SSD is important. It should be sited around the mainboard supply, and next to a PCI socked. Then insert the SSD chip, and tighten it with a tiny screw across its end on the mainboard.

Now use recovery mode to move the Windows 10 from the origin hard-disk to the new SSD. To start with, insert an USB with a storage size with at least 30 gigabytes. The next step is clicking Create a recovery drive. Within 1 hour the booting application could be transferred to the USB. The boot the computer with BIOS already set to boot with USB, while the recovery disk is still plugged in.

The last step is easy, however it costs me around 2 hours to restored all the operating system, and set up all applications automatically.

In a summary, all worth for this. Now my old PC runs faster with a brand new SSD of 512G, and 8 Giga RAMs.
