Hello guys, still me with another problem!
After I bought the new HDD, the booting went just fine, but I didn't install windows yet. After inserting an USB which contains the windows installation files, the bar in the "Windows is loading files..." screen loads much slower than usual. After booting into the installation and click install, it gets stuck at "Expanding windows files 0%..." , but the three dots are still moving so it doesn't freeze, it just can't move on.
Any help would be appreciated, please!

I am such an idiot, sorry for bothering you guys! I waited a little bit longer and it started to gather progress.

Sorry!

Good to hear that all is well and the OS fully updated  :thumbsup:

 

One final suggestion from me is for you to create a back up image of your new HDD, you can use Macrium Reflect (free) for this, download from here so as to avoid any foistware being landed on you by the likes of CNet and others like them.

 

If ok with you we can mark this thread as being resolved.
