How To: image Win7Ult from dead MacBookPro SSD to new Lenovo X1 Carbon
I've been using a Macbook Pro 15" for years, with Win7 Ultimate installed. Naturally I have everything just so.. It died a few days ago. I figured it was the SSD, but it was the mainboard or something.
I now have a new Lenovo X1 Carbon, and the SSD from the MacBook Pro is in an ext. USB enclosure. How would the experts recommend that I image the old installation onto the new laptop?
I found this article (Restore Windows 7 to different computer ) but it requires the old computer to be working.
(Please keep in mind the X1 doesn't have an optical drive -- I will have to create a bootable USB key for this process.. Or perhaps it's possible to boot off of the external HD -- I'll check the BIOS)
Thanks in advance..

Basically you can't access that Windows install on the Mac hard drive without first using a Mac computer to boot to the Windows install. At least that is the way I read it. I have a Mac and never found a way to access the Mac HDD on a Windows PC. Especially to image or copy the Windows Boot Camp install.
Take a look at Paragon software or WinClone. But then I think they only work when the drive is in a Mac.
