Move windows 7 installation from one disk partition to other disk part
Move windows 7 installation from one disk partition to other disk partition
HI all ,
Before going into details of my problem, I am listing down my system setup.
I have 3 HDDs on my pc with following details :-
1. Disk 0 - 500 GB - Windows 7 32-Bit Installation on C: - Partitions ( C - H)
2. Disk 1 - 1 TB - Windows 7 64-Bit Installation on J: - Partitions ( J - N)
Here I want to mention that, my Win 7 64-Bit installed on J: , and my linked documents folders reside in K: under folder K:\MyFolders ( as shown in K_myFolder.jpg)
3. Disk 2 - 1 TB - No OS on any partition - Partitions ( O - T)
As shown in attachment DiskMgmt.jpg
Now my problem is, windows 7 has detected some fault in Disk 1, thus I need to send the Disk 1 for RMA. So for the same I need to move my Windows 7 64-bit OS installation from Disk1 - Partition J: to Disk 2 - Partition O:, and data folder Disk 1 - K:\myFolder to Disk 2 - P:\myFolder.
How can I do with keeping the settings as mentioned above. How does my OS References will be remained for the requirements.
Thanks in Advance.

We need to see the labels which are obscurred in the Disk Mgmt columns, nor can we see how much space is used on K you want to move to the smaller P.
You want to use Disk Imaging.. I would use free Macrium Reflect which offers more flexibility where to reimage the partitions you choose to image. Macrium - Image your system.
However if you have a WD or Seagate HD in the mix, you can use their premium Acronis imaging app which is best of all, and has a very easy to understand Manual on it's download page on either HD maker's site.
After imaging if the OS fails to start on the new HD, unplug all other HD's, confirm the OS is marked Active, then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until it starts and holds the System flag. Then set preferred HD to boot first in BIOS, boot other one using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.
