Windows 10 Installation on a New SSD

Tomorrow or on Thursday, if the price for the SSD I chose is likeable I'll be getting myself a new SSD. My question is, is it simple to install Windows 10 on a new SSD or because it's an SSD as a whole it's something totally different?

Nothing special. Same thing as any other storage device.

To be specific, it's an NVMe M.2 SSD. If there's still no difference, then I can simply just install Windows as it is, as if I'm installing on an HDD?

yep. Like with any other install you need to chose the storage device you want install windows on to. Nothing different like with an hdd for example.

I just did it today myself ;)

Okay. But isn't there some configurations you need to do when you're in the BIOS or something?

nope. Just install the ssd, turn on the pc and install Windows 10.

Yeah, but I found the Samsung PM961 for probably less than what the 850 EVO costs in my country, and it's a steal. I better get one now before the prices for it will jack up.

Nah, I'd prefer to do a clean installation. Besides, that's the fun of it - because it'll only take you less than three minutes ;)
