You need a bigger disk in order to do this. The Segate Momentus Hybrid 7200 HDD needs to be bigger than 750GB. Get a 1TB drive and try that.

Have you tried the As-is option? I suspect that this will fail as though.

Also, I have never used the SeaGate program so I am unsure how reliable it is. Remember to take a backup before doing things like this.
