Here is my scenario.
I upgraded from Windows Vista Ultimate to Windows 7 Ultimate.
I do not have the physical cd as I just downloaded and upgraded(Definitely will get the cd next time).
So doing a fresh install would be problematic I would believe.
I purchased a Samsung SSD that came along with Norton Ghost 15.0.
I created a full restore image of the c:\ drive that has windows on it. It also required some information from the D:\ drive which is another physical drive.
I suspect that there are files on the d:\drive that the system needs to boot.
Just trying to see where to go from here and to build a solid foundation as far as backups restores and the OS running off of the SSD drive.
Also that there are no boot files required that are outside of the boot drive.
As of right now I'm looking to a create a bootable Windows 7 USB drive.
