It depends on the laptop. some are very easy to get to the RAM
and HD bays some are almost impossible. Based on my experience
with dell laptops though you should be able to do this yourself.
There should be a screw or two holding a panel in place on the
bottom of the laptop. One for the HD bays and one for the RAM.
Sometimes you can get to both under one panel. it varies from
laptop to laptop.
Just put in the new SSD and leave the old HD disconnected while
you install win 10 then connect it and you will have access to
everything on it and can delete all the old windows directories.

Good afternoon all,
With the talk regarding windows 7 and 10, I
recently noticed my laptop is windows 7, as well. I will
update this to windows 10 and although being a Dell XPS 15Z
model, it is as slow as a herd of turtles comparing to my
desktop which has a SD HD. I’ll be putting in a SD HD,
upgrading the ram from 4 to 8 and therefore, my question...
When I take the SD HD and have it as main
and then use the older 7200 HD as a back-up drive, is this
more difficult and I should have a computer store do the work
or is is all this work able to be done? I will have
unprofessional sighted assistance and have worked on and built
tower systems but with the laptop and the smaller size, is
this more than I should attempt?
Also, I would be attempting to do all the
shuffling of information from the old hard drive to the new SD
with the latest version/update of Jaws 2019.
Thanks for all comments,
