Switching OEM Windows 8.1 to SSD, any advice?
I have the ThinkPad Yoga, i5, 512GB 5400rpm + 16GB SSD for cache. The system is really snappy but it does take some time when moving big files around or in the rare cases I restart it.
So, I decided to upgrade to a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB which seems to be a very good choice by looking a reviews and tests.
My questions are:
- Has anyone tried to migrate the OEM Windows 8.1 installation to an SSD?
- How does it work now that the key is in the BIOS?
- Does the included Samsung Wizard do the job or another migration tool is better?
- Any tips for ensuring a smooth transition?
Thanks all in advance for your tips!
