How to copy an SSD boot drive to a spinning Hard Drive Disk partition?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking to sell my SSD now and wait for some of the newer PCI-express ones to come out on the market and get one of those instead.

The SSD is a Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 240gb Drive that has my boot partition of windows 8. I would like to clone it to a partition of my 2TB Caviar Black 7200 RPM hard drive (currently unpartitioned) and then have my computer boot from that partition as if nothing had happened.

How would I go about doing that? All the guides are for copying a current install to an SSD and not the other way around.
