    G751JY Win10 hdd switch procedure?

    Hi everyone,

    Just ordered a G751JY and i am interested in replacing the drive where the OS is installed.
    However, i will order the sdd once the laptop arrives and i can check if it comes with an M2 adapter or not.

    Thing is, this notebook already comes with win10 preinstalled and checking the stickies available here i see guides for doing this with Win 8 with Asus Backtracker or how to clean install with UEFI.

    However i dont see how this would work with a preinstalled Win10 since Asus Backtracker doesnt seem to work with Win10. I was hoping for a Backtracker solution since i have no experience installing an OS with UEFI (though i guess this could be my first).

    Would i need to create an USB stick with Win10 and do a clean install or is there a way to make an Asus ready USB?

    You don't download a Macrium Reflect Free and you can clone is straight across or Image the original drive and restore the image to your new SSD check out this Video on how to do it.
    or some other imaging software some others work most of the time
