Why Install OS on SSD
Solid-State Drive (SSD), also called a flash drive, is a type of hard drive. An SSD has much strength over a traditional hard drive. For example, compared with traditional HDD, it’s more reliable both in fragmentation and durability. There’s no physical read head, so an SSD doesn’t care where the data is stored on its chips. SSD is inherently faster both in booting system or apps. So install OS on SSD can improve the PC’s performance.
If you want to guarantee the safety of system or data or migrate Windows to larger or smaller storage devices in a single operation, install OS on SSD is a good way. By installing Operating System on Solid-State Drive, you may make the system start faster, or load the programs that you frequently use faster. While to achieve this goal, there are usually two methods: install OS on SSD directly and with AOMEI Partition Assistant.

Then you need to refer to the second method—with AOMEI Partition Assistant.
