Hey everybody , so I currently have two 250gb wd black sata ii 7200pm HDDs in my pc I am planning to replace them with one single 1tb wd blue sata iii 7200rpm HDD so what will yall prefer clean install of the Windows? or should I clone it onto the new HDD using a cloning software i.e EaseUS & Aomei backupper ? ( I've Windows 10 x64 pro retail) I don't have the DVD of Windows 10 as I upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1 then to 10 but I was able to find my license key through Magic jelly bean key finder software so I could download Windows 10 setup from Microsoft's site & burn the setup onto a DVD or make an USB installation , which method will better? cloning or clean install? & if I clone my OS I'll need to connect the new HDD > use it as a slave drive > then make partitions in it > then clone the Windows onto one of the partition > then disconnect the old HDDs > then boot the system with only the new HDD & the partition where I cloned the Operating system will automatically be renamed to C drive or will I need to do that manually by going into Disk management?? & how much time will the cloning take?
