Hi I have been lurking around and posting several threads over the last few weeks regarding how to clone and copy over my windows partitions onto a SSD drive.
Here are some of the threads I posted and started: Here
which have been an absolutely amazing amount of help thanks.
But - I feel a little overwhelmed with it all - can I just confirm if I can do the following as well? The following is based on me thinking that it might be best to clone the Windows 7 partition first onto the whole drive and then shrink the resulting C partition to define additional partitions for the rest - owing to my dual boot set-up.
1. Align the SSD
2. Make a System Image and create Restore Disk of my C and D Drives.
3. Back-Up the files.
Place the SSD into the compartment and power up.
4. Clean Install Windows 7 REM
5. Then apply the System Repair and Install the saved System Image which will identically place the C and D drives on the SSD
6. Then take out partition software and create an ext4 partition for linux (since I have and would like to continue with a dual boot).
Sorry if I have not completely understood - I am a little confused - !
Thanks again for all comments on this!!!!!!!!!
