New SSD. Trying to xfer registry

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey guys! I'm kinda new here, so bear with me =\\

I recently got a new SSD and I decided to use it as a boot drive for windows 7. I had windows 7 on my old drive so I figured I would just xfer the registry. Now I did this because I wanted to be able to play all my games and use my apps from the old HDD. I did the regedit > set all permissions to allow on both drives> exported the registry on old HDD > imported it from there and I get an error that it cannot access it. What am I doing wrong? And is there a way I can achieve what I want in some other manner? If someone can add me on skype and walk me through what I need to do it would help, my skype is vipuladusa. Thanks!

*Edit*
I just tried copying it over . . . and it "worked". It froze after doing it and then when I restarted it just stayed on the windows logo screen >_<

just transferring the registry to the ssd will not allow you to play games off the old hdd. try making an image of the old installation and transfer that to the new ssd.

imaging the hdd would be the best way to go if the old installation is under 30gb. if you can go this route, this pdf explains how to use acronis true image program. look for the section titled "Executing transfers".

if not, have you heard about Steam Mover? this will let you move certain programs to the ssd. here's a really good guide on the program. hope this helps.

yeah thats the problem. you cant just transfer the system files and expect it to work. you wont be able to transfer the bootloader, etc from just a copy and paste. afik, you have to clone the entire drive or not at all.

what you should probably do, is a clean installation on the ssd, and then use steam mover to move stuff from the hdd to the ssd.

in general, when a program installs, it places 'hooks' in the registry. for programs you want to keep on the hdd, you will need to use the new OS to reinstall them to the hdd.

sorry but i think you're going to need to reinstall your OS and some of your programs.

Ah I guess I'll do that. I just have a lot of games to back up then . . .xD Btw, can I run my pc in AHCI with my SSD AND HDD plugged in? I know it's meant for SSD to enable features such as trim, but for some reason when I did it my screen just stayed at a bios screen. Any ideas on that?
