Currently my laptop has a normal 1tb hard drive. However, because the computer will not boot up properly and hangs/freezes at the log in screen, I have been told that the hard drive is corrupt and needs replacing. Would this mean that I can purchase a new hard drive (or rather SSD), and connect it up to my desktop PC, install windows on it, and then install it in my laptop to start up…? Would that work, or am I missing something? I know it is difficult to say exactly what the problem is and whether that is the fix or not, but is the above something that could work, or is it not possible to install windows on a hard drive from another computer then install it into a laptop to start up?
Thanks, I look forward to your response.
