Yes, when I create a new volume on it, it works perfectly in windows. I also got it to show up in my BIOS and can select it as a boot drive (turns out I was just looking in the wrong spot lol )
If you have Wester Digital HDD in you PC then you can download Acronis WD Edition Free.That is first class back up,copy ,etc. program and very user friendly.There you have possibility to clone your OS drive to another drive.
Download software and make bootable CD.
BUT don't forget to disconnect the drive that you copy from(after you copy)before you boot for the first time because you will mess all up.
My WD drive is an external, and is not my current OS drive, nor is it the drive I want my OS to boot from unfortunately. Thank you for the suggestion! I think your post will still be useful.
From Unit Igor's post, it sounds like if I want to clone my OS onto a new drive and be able to boot from it, I need to clone the data, shut down the PC, disconnect the current drives that I am booting from, then disable RAID (since the new drive is a single one and not a RAID array), and then try and boot... Would that work?
I used a program called easeus todo backup to clone my hdd. When u clone there is an option to optimize for ssd. Once it was done I just changed my boot order in bios and everything worked perfectly.
