Replacing SSD while keeping boot settings the same

    I recently replaced the SSD on my razer. This was a very easy simple process however I hit a few snags. The first was I feel like I am missing some razer drivers that I had before. Some UIs are slightly different and the computer just feels different. Also on bootup I no longer get the razer startup I now just get a generic ugly windows startup. Nothing is wrong with it. It performs great. I am wondering if there is a way to install an exact copy of razer's default factory settings rather than windows' factory settings so I don't have to worry about any of this stuff. Or if there is a way to clone an exact copy of my old factory SSD: NVME, drivers, boot up, and all and transfer that to my new one.

    I assume, that you've done an clean OS install?
    If you have installed win 10 as a MBR - you won't see the Razer boot logo - you must prepare your usb stick for GPT mode (for UEFI bios) - it can be done by Rufus software (or course you have to have Windows ISO downloaded on your PC).

    You can do 1:1 copy with Acronis software (dunno if freeware Clonezilla started supporting NVMe drives), but you'll need 2 NVMe slots in your laptop OR... 1 slot + NVMe adapter (on USB).

    Did mine using Samsung clone software and all went well. I just cannot copy that 1GB of recovery partition...The rest was all copied and running with no issues after.
