Can I Move Windows from One Drive to Another without Reinstallation?
Situation1: Hello, in order to extend my Windows 8 computer memory, I do have chosen a new larger SSD which could be used to replace my old internal hard disk that has many bad sectors. However, I am also worrying whether the computer Windows 8 OS, which is still installed on the old hard disk, could be moved to this newly bought SSD? What can I do to directly copy and paste the Windows 8 OS to this new SSD without reinstallation? I really don’t want to pay it again while reinstall it on the new drive. Thank you for any advice here!
Situation2: Hello, I do have installed two hard disks on my Windows 7 computer and think whether it is possible to move the Windows OS, which has been installed well on the first hard disk C partition, from the master drive to the slave or second internal hard disk without reinstallation. I have heard there are sorts of certain programs that can help perform such OS transformation and don’t know whether they do works well. More importantly, does such program help move OS from one drive to another without reinstalling? Any idea would be highly appreciated! Thanks a lot!
