as far as i had researched my laptop allows both m.2 and sata storages, so as my laptop actually has a 1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive, i would like to use the empty m.2 slot with an (Crucial MX500 1TB 3D NAND M.2 TYPE 2280 INTERNAL SSD) that according to crucial compatibility web scan it says it would work. but the question is, how can i reinstall the original windows that comes with the laptop into the m.2 ssd, because i would like to boot windows from the ssd. i found that there are some tools that can copy the hdd content to the ssd, but i would like to has a new begining so i have to configure windows again but in the ssd. and also if i can do that, can i still access to the files that are on my HDD drive ? or do i have to make a copy before moving windows to the m.2 ssd?
i hope someone can help me, thanks in advance
here are some pictures of the drive i have and the compatibility test from crucial and my computer information.
