    How you suggest installing new Win 8 on SSD?


    I Have a copy of Win 8 that came with the laptop I bought.
    Now, I want to re install Win 8 on the new SSD that I bought.
    The question is: Can I do that if I replace the current HD by the SSD?
    what options I got?
    Thanks
    Ben

    Welcome to EightForums.

    Option One
    How to clone your SATA HDD drive to a SSD drive.
    How to Migrate OS to new Hard disk.

    Option Two.
    Reinstall Windows 8 with the OEM manufacturer Recovery DVD/USB disk.


    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD.
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8





    You can make a Microsoft Recovery USB Drive
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    warning   Warning
    Deleting the Recovery Partition is NOT RECOMMENDED


    warning   Warning
    I personally DO NOT RECOMMEND using this METHOD above, as of the ERRORS you may receive below with the Microsoft Recovery USB Drive.You would be best off using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or Recovery USB drive.




    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
    or
    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.





    The Windows Recovery USB drive & Recovery Partition can be very problematic, I recommend you also make a Windows System Image.

    System Image - Create in Windows 8

    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8

    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8

    System Image Recovery - Restore Image on Computer in Windows 8

    or
    look for a 3rd party ,Backup software, which fully supports Windows 8, uEFI, GPT & Secure Boot.
    Which is signed by Microsoft.

    I don't have any USB OR DVD of the OS. I've got the OS already installed on pc.
    Is there other way?

    1) Remove HDD.

    2) Replace with SSD.

    3) Install Windows 8 using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
