Migrate Easy 7
I have used migrate easy many times in the past with XP and Vista operating systems with no issues what so ever, here is what I would like to do, can someone please shoot holes in my plan before it falls over and I lose everything.
I have a 500GB spinney (not SSD!) Drive with a dual boot configuration and two partitions, one with Windows7 64bit and one with XP 32bit. I would like to transfer just the windows 7 partition to an SSD, I know migrate easy will not allow me to migrate just one partition but will only do the whole disk - so here is my plan...
I have reduced the size of both operating systems by copying and deleting files onto a spare hard disk. Both partitions contain less data than the SSD drive I am installing (combined both partitions are 95GB, SSD is 120GB)
I will use Migrate easy to copy the whole disc onto the SSD reducing automatically the partitions to make it similar to the old drive just a lot smaller. I will remove the old spinney drive to make sure that I can boot into the SSD as I would the old drive and work both operating systems. When I have done that, I will use windows disk manager to delete the XP partition and resize the 7 Partition to fill up the SSD. I will then put back in the old drive and use disk manager again to delete the 7 partition and expand the XP partition to fill the unallocated space. Using EasyBCD I will then reconfigure the boot table to find the XP partition again as technically it will have moved.
Sounds good to me but will this plan work?
Does Migrate Easy work well with Windows 7?
