"Waste of time"
Did not work.
I finally gave up on this program and researched some others. I was hoping to avoid having to burn a disc or discs since I was temporarily hooked up via the DVD connectors (as it recommended). I found a detailed how-to video on YouTube about Macrium Reflect Free.
I gave it a shot and once it started the new hard drive also stopped appearing on 'Computer.' But, it was not writing to the old drive, so I let it keep going. Looks like it did the trick. I don't know why THIS kept writing to the wrong drive or 'losing' it.
MRF software was also faster.
It cloned my drive and it booted to it after I removed the old one.
Here's that video:
I was glad to find such a detailed explanation and I guess I didn't have anything hooked up wrong (but, don't hold me to that).
OK, I made sure to double-check the second attempt after mistakenly cloning to my external hard drive (AAAGGHHH!!!). It was supposed to be cloning to the new drive (it even identified it by Model # and name). After 4 hours I thought the progress seemed stuck.
I was getting a message that the HP Recovery 'drive' (on the original one) was getting full. For some reason it was cloning into it. It did not mess up the main part of the original drive (that partition). When I looked at "Computer" that new drive was not showing up!!!
I had initialized and formatted it. To boot up I had to disconnect that drive and after reconnecting it won't show up. I connected it a different way and had to use Disk Management again (and after each failed attempt)!
I did not touch anything after I started cloning. I had it connected the same way for Reflect Free and it worked.
