    So back to where it was originally but it works fine with the HDD?

    We need to find out why it works with the HDD, but not with the SSD. If the SSD is faulty, you can return it.
    If it's fine, we can run a test install of Windows 10 to it, so you can try it out.
    If you don't like it, you can re-install 8.1 Update 3 to it.

    You can start by creating the Windows 10 installation media with the USB Flash drive.

    Just read this

    If you are installing Windows 10 on a PC running Windows XP or Windows Vista, or if you need to create installation media to install Windows 10 on a different PC, see Using the tool to create installation media (USB flash drive, DVD, or ISO file) to install Windows 10 on a different PC section below.

    This is not me do I still need the installation media?

    As ive said before when I plug the SSD it comes up with 2 drives. One say system reserved (E) and the other one says Local Disk (F) F drive has all my docs on. What I want to do is copy everything over onto my HDD in my laptop and then wipe the SSD ready to take the new window 10. how do I copy the whole SSD. And do I have to do F and E.
    I can click and drag into C drive is this the correct way to do it.

    You don't need anything that is on E:

    No you cannot just copy over all of the content and expect it to work exactly as before.
    If you want to do that you can clone the SSD to the HDD(if the image is not corrupt).
    But then if there is a problem with the cloning, you will have overwritten everything that was on the HDD and will then have no working options.

    You gave the impression that you had already copied over everything that you wanted to keep.

    No not yet. I said found all the files think i'll leave them on the SSD ad just use it as a removal able hard drive. But as you said the HDD maybe a little slow so thought i would use the SSD again.

    Not quite. You have created installation media on the USB drive. Downloaded and saved means downloaded and saved.

    We'll swap drives and get started once you are happy that you have made backups of the data that you wish to keep.

    So next we hope that we can install to your SSD(replace it within the laptop).

    Then you plug the installation media on the USB into the right hand side of the laptop. Restart the laptop and then keep pressing the F10 key every half a second, until you see a Boot Menu.
    From the Boot Menu choose the USB Flash Drive if you can see it there.

    If you cannot see it, try this;

    Hi clicked on upgrade and it said can't do upgrade from USB. So clicked custom
    But now it says Windows can't be installed on drive 0 partition 1 and when i click on the over one it says the same with that drive. Do I need to format the drive first. At the bottom of the page it says
    Refresh
    Delete
    Format
    New
    Load driver
    Extend
