Windows 7: Clone

30 Jan 2011   #11

window 7 home premium 32bit

I have been looking at this software

Hello *******,

Thank you for contacting Acronis Customer Central. My name is Vishal.

I understand that you wish to know about booting your machine without entering any Windows 7 Serial number using the Cloned hard disk on your machine.

I have completely understood your query and will answer it to your complete satisfaction.

*******, you can use Acronis True Image Home 2011 and clone your internal hard disk to a larger hard disk.

Then, you can boot with the Cloned hard disk on your machine and it will not ask for the Windows 7 Activation Key and it will be able to load Windows Operating System normally & you will be able to use installed programs/applications under it.

You may refer to the following knolwedgebase article link for instructions about Cloning Basic Disks in Acronis True Image Home 2011:-

Acronis True Image Home 2011: Cloning Basic Disks | Knowledge Base

Please let me know, if you have any other questions. I will leave your case open until you confirm the issue is resolved. I look forward to your response.

Yes--if you have either a Western Digital or Seagate hard drive. You can download the free version from the support area of those 2 company websites.

Just in case my pc decides to pack up on me ?
You might take a look at "Disk Wizard (Acronis based)" from Seagate if you have a seagate disk in your PC.... (it checks to see if you have one installed)...
| Seagate


if you have a Western Digital drive you can use
"Acronis True Image for Western Digital"
