If already a mbr disk:
  • remove the 200MB partition on SSD
  • add the space (which is now unallocated) eventually to S
  • mark S active.
Don't bother disk letters about now. They are just defined in registry. It's easy to fix.
post screenshot of disk management afterwards
Waiting for screenshots

First convert the SSD to MBR instead of GPT!!
Convert GPT disk to MBR disk with free partition manager, Windows Disk Management and Diskpart command.

You have to delete the partitions on SSD first. Of SSD disk is type MBR: clone the 2 partitions only. Make them both primary. Is S new Windows 7 on SSD and the other partition just data? If so mark S active

1. Delete all partitions on SSD (easeus)
2. Convert to MBR (easus)
3. Clone HDD C drive to SSD (w. efi - paragon)
4. Resize partition (easus)
5. Copy D to SSD (easus)

I may try to get it all done in easus only it doesnt easily allow efi copy

Hope I've got this right ? Thanks for your help !
