replace boot drive

HP Recommended

Hello What is best way to upgrade the boot nvme drive. I got a samsung 970 evo plus 2 tb as my upgrade drive. My laptop doesn't have an optical drive. I want to copy the existing nvme possibly to usb, or the existing hdd. Then replace drive and load it with the previous drives contents.

Connect an external harddrive, create a recovery drive to that, replace the drive and then perform a recovery. Or purchase an external NVME adapter and mirror your existing drive to the new one.
