Yes, you can transfer an SSD with OS and programs installed to another/new computer. And cloning is the best way to do so. To this end, you have to use a third-party cloning tool like EaseUS Disk Copy.

To transfer your Windows installation disk to another computer, there may be 2 circumstances: to a computer with the same hardware and to a computer with dissimilar hardware.

When transferring to a computer with identical hardware, you can directly insert the SSD into your new computer, then set the SSD as your first boot device in BIOS. When transferring to a PC with dissimilar hardware, the case will be totally different. You need to copy data from one hard drive to another via cloning.

Cloning can help you transfer everything from one drive to another, but you have to use third-party cloning software since Windows has no built-in cloning tools. EaseUS Disk Copy can help you in this regard.

It is a practical disk cloning utility designed for Windows computers. It can help you clone your boot drive to a new SSD and clone your system and disk easily and quickly.

In addition, it can help you move your Windows from HDD to HDD, SSD to SSD, or HDD to SSD without OS reinstallation. Last but not least, you can use it to clone a disk with a bad sector, resize your disk partition during the cloning process, and create a WinPE boot disk.

You can transfer your Windows SSD to another computer with dissimilar hardware. To this end, you need to turn to third-party cloning tools like EaseUS Disk Copy to clone your data to another drive from your new PC.
