How to Migrate OS from HDD to SSD Dell Laptop?

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 15, and my configuration is: Intel(R) Core i5-5200U CPU, 8GB RAM, and 1 TB HDD. Now I want to migrate OS from my HDD to a new SSD. What should I do or use? Wait for your advice, thanks!

Since Dell does not provide a built-in cloning function or downloadable cloning software specifically for their users, you need the help of third-party software to migrate OS from your HDD to a new SSD. And EaseUS Disk Copy is the powerful cloning software I'd like to recommend.

EaseUS Disk Copy is applicable to a variety of Windows systems and can flexibly help you clone disks, systems, etc. Its cloning speed is very fast, and you will complete the system migration in a very short time. 

At the same time, its advanced functions can also help you to replace and upgrade your hard disk, clone M.2 SSD with only one slot, move C drive to an external HDD, etc.

You can complete your plan through the following steps.

Step 1. Run the EaseUS Disk Copy after installing it.

Step 2. Hit the Disk Mode option and select the destination disk.

Step 3. Select your HDD as the target disk and hit OK and Next options

Step 4. Now start migrating OS to HDD after hitting the Proceed option.

It should be noted that after you successfully complete the cloning, you need to disconnect the old drive before restarting the system and then restart the computer to confirm whether the system can start normally.
