I've got to be honest, it was December 2017 when I did my upgrade and I can't quite remember now what the SATA to USB was for, but logically, I guess it's so that the clone can be done before removing the existing hard drive.  Doesn't the new SSD connect via SATA?  So, you need the lead to connect the new SSD via USB to do the initial clone.

I see what you're saying though.  Could you install the new SSD and connect it to the old hard drive via SATA, then do the clone?  To that, I'm afraid I don't know the answer.  All I know is, I would have used the simplest and least risky method.

I'm just adding things as I recall them here, but another reason I probably used the USB method is that I don't have any spare internal SATA ports, so I couldn't have connected both drives internally at the same time.
