Looked for a free trial but didn't find one.

Not sure Dave - they usually do the same giveaway on various websites - magazine covermounts, etc , so a google search might come up with something.

I don't think the key will work with anything except the special edition version.

The latest version of Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 10.0.17.13028_000 does not work with Win 7 64bit

It hangs with a few seconds remaining, with the following error: -

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the prblem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart the computer
2. Choose your language settings and then click "next"
3. Click "repair your computer"

status: 0xc0000034
Info: An unexpected error has occured

When I install Win 7 installation disk and click repair my computer, I get an error message telling me that the system repair disk is not compatible with the version of Windows I am trying to repair WTF.

I have managed to restore Win 7 on HDD to last known good configuration, but as yet Paragon are not able to offer any other solution than:-

"It *could* help. But I think it will be useless too"

Not sure what happened to your system, but the program has worked fine for thousands of other systems.

same problem with Migrate OS to SSD w/ Win7 64 bit

I also purchased the Paragon Migrate OS to SSD and had the exact same problem. I hangs either at the "Few seconds left" or "36 seconds". Upon reattempting, the space has been allocated, but the process is never finished. I tried installing the hard drive after the program hanging and had the same problem as the previous post. If anyone has a solution or tips, that'd be great. If all else fails, I'll try to get my hands dirty with the "geeky way", but that's not very promising.

This will get you faster assistance and info I would or others will need.
Go to the below link and click the big orange/yellow New Thread button on left of page and start a new thread for assistance.
Installation & Setup - Windows 7 Forums

List exactly what the problem is.
You can even copy and paste your above post to get you started.

Also we will need a Snip of Disk Management. Full list of drives and info showing.
Below is how to find and open Disk Management if needed.
This way we can make sure you have things set properly for the transfer of the image. No need to drop the curtain as shown in the picture just a regular Snip.

Hmm, the Paragon program has never failed me. May I suggest that you send a mail to the Paragon people asking for their assistance. They are very cooperative.

Btw; The geeky way is fun. You might learn something.
