Trouble Cloning Windows 7 64 bit to another drive
Hello Seven Forums,
I've been reading a lot of info on the boards but still haven't found the best way for me to accomplish cloning a Windows 7 64bit installation to another HDD. Let me explain my set up so my task makes more sense.
I bought a all the parts for a custom build machine for my home office and then doubled the parts. Same CPU/RAM/MOBO/HDD (seagate 1TB) for software startup with my friend. For my office I want want two machines set up the same way (dev kits/etc)
I have one machine set up exactly how I want it. 2 Partitions, no system reserved partition (since i choose the partition to install during set up) The first partition contains the OS/Dev tools/settings/etc. the other is for build data and I don't care if it changes and doesn't need to be cloned or backed up.
What is the best way to clone Computer A's Partition 1 (with windows7) to Computer B's Partition 1?
Right now I have them in the same machine on the SATA bus but when I try Clonezilla to clone parts I can't get windows to boot on the other drive. Is it better to use GParted for this?
Anyways, I had ghost a long time ago working great but thats pretty outdated now. Thanks for any help or advice.
