If it was me I would clone the existing drive to the new drive using Macrium (other programs are available) and then just change the drives over. If there is nothing on the 256 drive seeing as it's a new laptop you could just stick the 1tb drive in and install the OS to that drive from a usb

Nice laptop. ^^

Might wanna check, you can probably run both the 256GB SSD and the 1TB SSD at the same time.
Leave Windows on the 256GB and put everything else on the 1TB.

I "think" it may have a 2230 and a 2280 slot. But as I stated, I would check that first.

So, unless you ordered that laptop with more than one storage device... there's no place to put a 2nd storage device.
So if you want to clone, you'll need to use an external enclosure.
If you already have the 1TB SSD, you'll need something like this...




You can still just keep Windows on the 256GB SSD and get something like this...





For future reference, I also found the Service Manual...

This is why I hate these companies. Why do they make laptops hard to perform upgrades? It's senseless.

I think quite a few people hate being trapped with their hardware.
But there is a company that's attempting to do something about it...




As for the laptop in this topic, it's one of those "rugged" laptops.
They're made more to survive anything, than to be necessarily easily upgraded, etc.
Ruggedized laptops, do what they're supposed to do... survive. They cost a pretty penny too.

I think quite a few people hate being trapped with their hardware.
But there is a company that's attempting to do something about it...




As for the laptop in this topic, it's one of those "rugged" laptops.
They're made more to survive anything, than to be necessarily easily upgraded, etc.
Ruggedized laptops, do what they're supposed to do... survive. They cost a pretty penny too.
Thanks for sharing that website. I have visited and bookmarked for later. I'm glad to see someone is working on a laptop design that is not so much propriatary.

In fact there are four partitions. Disk manager hides MSR
- EFI - Fat32 - 100M
- MSR - RAW - 16M
- C: - NTFS
- MS Recovery - ~700M

The winretool is part of the MS Recovery.

To work perfectly you should clone the whole drive. (four partitions above)

Consider making a backup image instead of a clone.

Clean install Windows 11 on the new disk drive.

Restore only C:

Run startup repair as needed.

I expect you can resize with that tool it is a common feature.

Do whatever you want to it with Partition Wizard Free. Not with Macrium, Macrium is for cloning and imaging.
Install PW, then run it. You`ll see your disk layout. Right click on your newly cloned SSD, and choose what you wanna do from the drop down.
If you wanna extend C, then do that. If you wannna make a partition out of the unallocated space then do that. It`s your choice :)
Then just click Apply down in the bottom left corner.
