Good to know.Also a note for future reference,always keep ~10-15% of total usable space free in a ssd(for a 250gb ssd total usable space is ~232gb),it helps in performance.

i will do a fresh installation of win 10 and office 2010 and some other applications....games will be installed in WD 1 tb...
Don't install the game on WD 1TB if its a Sata drive and not SSD.
Install the game in SSD partition and you will be happy with the performance & loading time :)

Not possible with 200gb of free ssd space(out of which windows needs around 40-50gb) & when major/popular games nowadays are upwards of 50gb.

How old is the laptop,even 5-6 years old laptops have UEFI option.If laptop/system bios is set to legacy mode then format any bootable disk(hdd or ssd) as MBR.
not laptop, desktop. M5A78L-M PLUS is the mobo

cloned only C drive with EASEUS......make the ssd as bootable (which is connected to SATA4....SATA1 being the WD) but system does not boot from SSD asking to insert bootable drive.
