Upgrading the 128 GB PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD in the OMEN Obelisk Desktop...

OMEN Obelisk Desktop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am looking to order an OMEN Obelisk Desktop but want to use a Samsung PCIe® NVMe™ M.2 SSD stick instead of what HP offers.

 

So I am looking at ordering the lowest stick of 128 GB in the online configuration and then change it out to the Samsung 500 GB when I get the computer.

 

My question is - where does HP put the Windows 10 OS, etc. - on the M 2 SSD drive when shipped or on the 1 TB HHD?

 

Thanks!

Greetings,

Greetings,

Welcome back to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.

 

Hp would configure this system with the operating system on the faster M.2 drive.

So how would you go about "upgrading" the supplied 128 GB M.2 to the 500 GB Samsung M.2...?

Hi,

 

This is a fairly complex process with a lot of variables.

 

You have two options to move the existing factory operating system from one disk to a different disk.

 

A disk clone.

A disk image

 

I use Macrium reflect free to do both procedures.

 

You can check tips for cloning (Link) or tips for creating disk images (Link) at each preceding link.

 

You will also need to create Macrium Reflect rescue media (Link).

 

Regards
