Yes, that is always my first port of call. Some (very) basics on how to replace/add hard drive, nothing - I've found - on how to run OS from new SSD hard drive.
Ah okay, so are you looking for tips on how to move the os across to a new hd or how to physically replace the drive?
Both, since both is what I'll eventually need to do. Mostly moving the OS across however, if I had to choose.
On a new PC I wouldn't bother trying to clone it, just grab the latest Windows 10 installer from Microsoft's website and do a fresh install.
Won't that cost a pretty penny?

No, it's completely free.

If the PC came without an operating system you'd have to buy it but all you'd be doing is putting on a fresh install using the Windows 10 licence that came with the machine:

Well, this 'Ask' section has been a washout (for me). I'm no further forward as it stands today.
