Upgrading a system with HDD and Optane memory to an SSD or NVME drive

Can you please provide step by step directions to do this?

I've cloned conventional HDDs to SSDs before, but not to an NVME drive.

As I understand it, I need to disable the Optane module.

But then what? How do I actually clone the HDD to a new NVME drive?  Do I remove the Optane module from the PC and install the NVME drive in its place?

I assume I need to install the cloning software on the PC.  

Do I boot from the original PC, clone the HDD to the NVME and then remove the HDD?  Or can I keep the HDD as a second drive?  How to assure it boots from the new NVME drive?

A video would help!

 

Thanks,

 

Howard in Baltimore

Solved!

Upgrading a system with HDD and Optane memory to an SSD or NVME drive

uncouple the optane drive first.

install Macrium free

open computer

this shows how to open the computer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxGyImgP4OI

remove the 5 screws from the shield covering the motherboard.

see here-https://support.hp.com/au-en/product/hp-pavilion-24-r000-all-in-one-desktop-pc-series/17210305/manua...

go to the upgrading and servicing guide and read page 13 and 14.

remove the optane from the M.2 slot

install the new M.2 drive

close back of computer and start it up.

open Macrium and clone the HDD onto the new drive

go to the bios through setting: advance startup options (I googled how to do this)

move the new ssd into the first boot drive position (It's pretty intuitive)

restart and you should be booting from the new drive

I repartitioned and reformatted tho old drive and use as storage.

 

 

 

 

We disassemble an HP All In One 27" Pavilion R119 Desktop, replace the SATA spinning hard disk with a SATA SSD, and then benchmark the system
