HP EliteOne 800 G4 (4KX21EA)
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, 

 

Client have already older HP EliteOne 800 G1-All-in-One-PC, Produkt Nr.  H5T90ET  (it was the one with "ssd cache" and I assume normal sata 2,5" drive)

 

We would like to replace the PCs with current model:    Hewlett-Packard HP EliteOne 800 G4 (4KX21EA)  and keep the WIndows 10 Pro.

 

I think we simply will "Clone"  the HDDs  to   SAMSUNG EVO 500 GB SSD 2,5" Drive  (mz-75e500b/eu)

 

 EliteOne 800 G4  has 512 GB  NVM Express (NVMe)  PCI Express

 

Do you we need a 3rd Party  NVM Express (NVMe)  PCI Express  to SATA Adapter?

Space is available for the "replacement SAMSUNG Disks right?

Do you think "clone of old sata drives from the G1 AiOs to NVM Express (NVMe)  is also possible?

 

I know that Warranty Problems happen if 3rd Party Hardware is used.

 

thx in advance!

@question1212

With OEM PCs, like the ones you bought from HP, the license is tied to the individual PC, not to the PC owner.

So, even if you could do it, it would not be legal to "clone" the OS from one PC to another.
