Cloning a HDD to SSD
Hi, im going to cut to the chase, I cannot clone my HDD ( western digital blue 1 tb) to my SSD (kingston HyperX 3K SSD 240 gb). I have tried a bunch of programs mainly AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard Edition 5.5 and i got close by individually copying each partition to the ssd, but when i booted from it the computer said that a critical file was missing and required a backup disk drive thing which i don't have... Also i know i have enough space on the ssd to transfer everything from the hdd. Also the the hdd is in a Basic GPT format (i don't know if its classified as a format or not) and the ssd is in an mbr format. the program that i was using said that i couldn't clone because the hdd was in a gpt format so i tried to find a gpt to mbr converter but when i opened it up it was the other way around. I am really not sure where to go from here any help would be awesome thanks. Also i am using windows 8
Doesn't Kingston provide data migration software? Have you tried http://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/components/migrate-OS-to-SSD/?
I was just successful (after some trials and tribulations) with Macrum Reflect Free and the Macrum Rescue Media that you can create.
Here's the thread I just created:
