Hello, I have a relatively basic spec acer laptop and I've been considering getting an SSD for a little while. Now the other day I switched the laptop on and it wouldn't boot up. I now get a "Bad system config" error message.
I am now thinking that now would be a time to get the SSD. So my question is can I fit a new SSD then reinstall Windows 10 afresh onto that? I made a USB recovery when I got the machine, or do I download Windows onto cd/dvd, (on a good machine) and use that? Once I have a fresh Windows installed I would then use a caddy to copy over my files etc to the new SSD. The current HDD (spinny) works in a caddy and so i'd be able to copy them over.
