I don't quite understand what's going where. Is your 4TB and 1TB going into your new 8TB? Whatever the case, I'll add more to the two options you presented.
With option #1, you just need to go into BIOS and make sure your other storage drives are not listed in the boot order.
With option #2, I don't understand this. When you install Windows for the first time, it's going to reformat. So I don't understand where the data is going to even see #2 as an option. Unless you mean to say that you'll use an older storage as the boot storage in the new computer...but you don't exactly say this.
so everything is going into my new pc.
But i want to make the 2 tb SSD my boot drive with windows on it. This 2 tb SSD is new and has nothing on it.
BUT my main issue is that the 1 tb HDD is my old boot drive with windows on it. And not sure if I can simply install both into new pc, and then after doing this, then some data to SSD as needed? Since both will have windows on them?
But also the 1tb HDD had all of the "Desktop" files on it from old pc. And wondering how the new pc will read these files if the main boot drive is no longer this HDD? Like I want to keep all the same files from my desktop there.
