Once itís running (use something like Driver Booster to install missing drivers if necessary) then attach you old drive and copy your profile data and other files to the new drive. Once you are completely satisfied that you have all of your old data copied then format your old drive to use as data. If you have windows 7 or 8 when you go to activate Win 10 click on the I have a key option and plug in the key from the sticker on your machine and it will activate. This is a safe way to get your data moved over. Weíve fired help desk guys for not doing it this way and losing usersí data....

I would not use any of those clone tools unless you have all of your data backed up to a 3rd drive first.
^^^ This is another way to do it. Make SURE you get your Wi-Fi driver downloaded, and installed FIRST, otherwise, Driver Booster will not work.
