Thanks for your help and information, please forgive me as I am coming across dumb!
Just assure me of the procedure:
I run the clone tool, this clones my current HD to the new HD, I then unplug the old HD and try to restart Windows, where do i set the disk 0 and disk 1 information?
In BIOS i have device boot priority, should i set that to the new HD before attempting to restart Windows? and after unplugging the old HD?
Then if needed run start up repair.
Get Windows working.
Plug in old HD maintaining the BIOS settings, I should explain that both drives are SATA, dont know if that makes a difference.
Get into Windows and format the old HD?
I could then save a backup of the new HD to the old one yes?
If i did that would it be best to create a seperate partition for the back up on the old HD?
I should then have a clean drive with 2 partitions, 1 for back up, 1 fresh for storage.
And windows will run from the new HD??
Please bear with me, i just want to make absolutely sure before i attempt this, Thanks again.
