I just bought a new Samsung SSD hard drive... Now i need to move my OS drive to the new SSD (Windows folder, program files and my documents)
The SSD drive comes with Norton Ghost, so i tryed it... I followed the instructions and picked option "Copy my hard drive". After the cloning process everything seems to be correct, the files are on my new SSD... But when i reboot and change the BIOS to boot on the SSD, i get the error "BOOTMGR not found"
what am i doing wrong ?
BTW, Windows 7 is in use when i am trying to clone the HD since Norton Ghost is installed on the same HD i'm cloning, so it may be the source of the problem... Is there a program that would allow me to clone the HD outside of windows, something like a bootable CD/USB that would clone my HD without using it ?
I'm confused... please help me ! I don't want to reinstall windows...
You can use the Windows feature in system and security called system image. Create a system image on the drive you have now and then install windows on the ssd and then when you boot from the SSD you can go into system and security and select restore from system image. You will then have all og you settings and files restored on the new SSD.
How can i install Ghost on a bootable USB Key ? I searched but haven't found any way
I downloaded Acronis but it doesn't works. It says some error about "Windows installer service" not being correctly installed
Where is the "system image" feature of windows ? I tryed the windows restore utility, and then creating a "restore point" but the restore point is only 100MB so it definatly doesnt include all files of my 120GB disk...
