Hello,
A while ago I upgraded my PC I got a new motherboard, CPU, RAM, and added an NVME. When I first did it, I couldn't find a way to put windows on my NVME without the USB so I gave up and left it where it was. Well now, the time has come and I really want to put windows on it and use it as a bootable drive. I Tried to do the bootable USB method with the windows tool, but every time I got into the installation window after boot it would freeze and not work. I have tried nearly everything to fix it and It just isn't working. I am looking for a way to do it without using a USB or disk. I am currently running on my HDD so I have access to the NVME drive. Is it possible to install windows on it using my desktop before booting? I'm sorry, I am a noob at this.

Clone Windows from HDD to NVME

In your case, you can consider cloning your current Windows OS from your HDD directly to the NVME drive using a Windows cloning tool like iSumsoft Cloner. Clone only your operating system drive (usually drive C:) to the NVME and keep the other partitions unchanged. After the clone is complete, you need to enter your PC’s BIOS settings to change the boot order to make your PC boot from the NVME drive. After that, your cloned Windows system will run perfectly on the NVME drive without any problems. I hope this helps.
