Windows 7: SSD upgrade Problem "the selected GPT formatted disk contains ...."

This first showed up on a Dell I was prepared to help delete Hiber Partition and reenable on C but only search results came from Dell saying OS would not boot. I didn't believe this but couldn't chance it on OPs repartition.

Someone needs to get hold of one to test.

That is an old PC with Legacy BIOS.

I wonder if newer PCs with UEFI, IRST, Fast Boot ... work differently.
I tried it on a brand new UEFI 32bit Windows 8,1 and cmd did not like the powercfg.
