Got a New SSD, need help with cloning windows.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So i got my vertex 3 120gb, but i really dont want to and can't afford to right now, to reinstall windows completely, since i have many partitions where i have programs installed. So my question is, how can i move/clone/copy the windows partition on to the SSD and boot off of the SSD with the same windows, i know its possible, but im just not sure how.

I have tried just cloning the partition completely, but when i try to boot it says BOOTMGR missing. So any other ways, or maybe some help would be appropriated! smile.gif

Your welcome! Glad I helped. I've had a bad experience with Acronis. After Acronis failed to do the job. It left over unneeded drivers and is a pain to uninstall the program fully. So I hope having left over files from Acronis wont bug you.
