    use cloning software for Kingston HyperX 3K SSD?

    I am looking to buy a new SSD for myself and therefore I have made my mind to go with the Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB Solid State Drive. Now, I was wondering how does one uses any cloning software that is available on the internet? For using the same will I have to reinstall the operating system in my computer or not? Thanks for any information.

    I think that you will have to enable the AHCI in your Windows operating system and then set to AHCI in BIOS before you do all the cloning procedure and this way the new SSD will get recognized. There are many guide or method given on this forum on how to enable AHCI in your computer, just search for it. Also you will need to do a clean Windows install since it will always be better.

    In your BIOS setting if the hard drive is already running in AHCI mode then you are all set to go forward. Just try to get the cloning software and then clone the hard drive to your new SSD and after that switch both of these drivers in the BIOS boot order. Now you can try to clean up the operating system from the old hard drive. Also, SSD can also get recognized without AHCI.

    With the cloning software you will be able to choose what drives you want to clone, it will be obviously C: drive but. Just plug in the SSD by powering off your computer and then restart your computer. After that use the cloning software to clone the C drive to the SSD and after it is done then go to BIOS and change the boot order and then restart and ensure that Windows is been read from SSD.
