SSD UPGRADE

HP Recommended
HP Envy 700-414 With Beats Audio
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am upgrading My HDD hard drive and replacing it with a Samsung Evo 860 SSD. I am doing a fresh install of Windows 10 from a USB Flash Drive. Do I need to turn off Secure Boot and enable Legacy Boot to do so?

@akinkoff85,

No issue, but install the SSD 2.5" device without any formatting. Let WIN 10 find it.
