    "Easy, Intuitive Cloning - Using Boot CD in Windows 7"

    February 5, 2011  |   By CorkyMuldoon


    Intuitive interface, easy operation.


    MUST use the utility from a Bootable CD (created through the program) in Windows 7.


    After purchasing/downloading Easy Migrate 7, I did my research (I know, I know - cart before horse). I found that the latest version didn't play completely well with Windows 7. On an Acronis support forum, I learned that Windows 7 cloning required the use of a boot CD and cloning from the it. I believe this has something to do with the additional 100+/- MB partition that 7 uses when booting the OS.

    Anyway, the cloning process took about 2 hours, after which I moved the new 1TB SATA drive from SATA 2 to SATA 0 connections and - voila! - Windows 7 booted and started normally.

    I did have to download and utilize a free partition manager from EASUS to extend the C partition to utilize a great deal of space still unallocated, but that was an intuitive, too.

    All in all, cloning and replacing my hard drive was a simple and straightforward process.
