@ConFuSioN95 -- "extra slot"

 

I have only seen one notebook, many years ago, that has a "spare" slot for a second disk-drive, but I have seen a few where the CD/DVD device can be removed, and a "cage" can be inserted in its place.

 

Another option, after that "cloning" process that I descirbed, is to install the (cloned) SSD inside the notebook, and purchase an "empty" external disk-drive case, with a USB interface. Insert the old disk-drive into that case, and connect the case to a USB port on your notebook.

@ConFuSioN95 -- is there room inside your notebook for another disk-drive?

 

Some notebook computers have a removable CD/DVD device, and a "cage" to hold the new disk-drive, that can be inserted into the hole created after the removal of the device.

 

Otherwise, you need to backup all your personal files, to an external disk-drive, then disassemble the notebook to remove the disk-drive, to connect the SSD, to reassemble, to reinstall Windows, and then restore your personal files from your backup.

 

Or, if you have a desktop computer, it is possible to temporarily connect both the current disk-drive and the SSD to the computer, and use free "disk-cloning" software, such as "Macrium Reflect",  to copy everything, byte-by-byte, from "old" to "new", and then to connect the SSD into your notebook.

 

I hope this helps.
