Nowadays, with the price of SSDs getting cheaper all the time, we would often upgrade an existing laptop HDD into an SSD. And most of the time, in order to do that, it is best to migrate the existing Windows installation on the HDD.

Migrating a Windows 10 installation from HDD to SSD is usually done using Windows tools like the Samsung Data Migration Software or various forms of AOMEI Partition Assistant. I never trusted the latter application 100%, to be very honest.

Also, this time I don't have Admin access on the laptop to be migrated. At least not on Windows 10. But the BIOS (UEFI) is unlocked, so we can at least boot a Linux live ISO.
