Nitro N50 - How to migrate to and choose an SSD?

MasterbmanMasterbman Posts: 2Member New User
Hi!
I just bought a Nitro desktop and I'd love to add an SSD. I'm confused though about which SSDs are compatible for the Nitro's slots, which slot to use, and how to migrate or clone the OS to the SSD. Please help!

Acer Nitro Gaming PC - Intel Core Ci7-8700/1TB HDD/8GB RAM/NVIDIA GTX 1050/Windows 10

Expansion Slots
1 PCle x16 -1 Available; 2 M.2 -1 Available

Model #: N50-600-EB11

    Hi,
    You have a slot for M.2 SSD, you can install a M.2 NVMe SSD or a M.2 SATA SSD whichever you prefer, after installing the SSD, please follow the steps to migrate your HDD contents including OS. 13 in the snip is the slot for M.2 SSD.
    1. Install Minitool Partition wizard free program, run it and use Migrate feature to transfer the contents of HDD.
    2. Go to BIOS settings, move to BOOT tab and make the SSD as your first boot device.
    3. Once you are happy with the migration, you can format the HDD and use it for your storage but make sure that everything is fine, if you want you can remove the HDD and use only the SSD to make sure the migration was successful.
