HP Recommended
pavilion bf103ne
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am installing a new M.2 SSD on my Laptop with the existing HDD as a data Storage . I want to clone my operating system on the new SSD hence i would like to know a simple process of cloning or USB booting on my HP pavilion 14 bf103ne.

Kindly Please provide links to a complete process specifically for HP pavilion 14 series or anything that would work similarly for  my model.  I would really appreciate your support here . Thanks!

The main impediment you will face is that to clone the existing drive, you have to connect the NVMe drive to your PC -- and for that, you will have to go online and buy an adapter that will connect an NVMe drive to a USB port.  I don't have part numbers for these things, so you will have to do an online search for the part.

 

Also, you can not clone only the OS -- you have to clone at least the OS partition and the boot partition; otherwise, the SSD will not boot when you then mount it in the PC.

 

Once you have that, you can follow the instructions below and use the Free version of this software to do the cloning:

 

1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) from here: https://www.macrium.com/reflectfree
2) Connect the new drive to the PC using a USB-to-SSD drive adapter
3) Follow the instructions in this link: http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW/Cloning+a+disk
4) Shutdown the PC when done
5) Swap the drives and reboot the PC.

NOTE: To do this easily, the SDD has to be the same capacity as the HDD.  IF you get an SDD that is a lot smaller, then before you do the cloning, you have to shrink the largest partition on the HDD (usually the OS partition), to the size such that it, and the other partitions, fit easily on the SSD.


You should boot from the new drive without any problems.
