Thanks to all of you.
I feel like I have been to the zoo, what with a tiger, an ostrich, and a spectacle-wearing monkey driving a coffin nail.

This bit that kado897 said: "Unfortunately I don't have a setup I can test this on at the moment." : put me to thinking that maybe I should scavenge me some old/inexpensive working HDDs just for playing around with and thus learn how things work.

The best way to test things is hands on experience ...

lol. We like our avatars. That sounds like a good idea I like to test before I use too.

Major StartUp and Performance Problems After Blackout ??? - Page 2 - Windows 7 Help Forums

I was extremely careful in using Macrium to clone the O/S partition from one HDD to another; I don't know what I was doing wrong, but I finally had to use EaseUS Partition Master FREE to fix the mess I was making; with EaseUS, the first attempt was a winner; all of the gritty details are in that thread in the link.

Thanks to you guys for your help and information.

I have a question for you guys about how Macrium Reflect Imaging vs. Cloning handles the Windows Updates History list.

When I restore a Macrium Reflect Image, my Windows Updates History list correctly appears in: Control Panel > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates. But the history list is empty in: Control Panel > Windows Updates > View Updates History.

Does this discrepancy also occur when a disk is Cloned with Macrium Reflect, or is it just a function of Imaging? (Updates are listed in View Installed Updates but not in View Updates History.)

Thanks.
