solved Win 8.1 on new SSD, Win7 on old HDD.

THANK YOU SO MUCH! Thanks for taking the time and making it public.

Don on December 4, 2007 2:41 am This is amazing tool Dimitri ! My concern was that if I chose C: (the active and boot partition for my laptop) that it would compromise my laptop. Then the first prompt for OS partition thats where windows files will install, in my example K drive, and select R drive as the boot drive.

Just be sure not to change where the original HDD SATA cable was connected, it has to be re-connected to the exact same port to avoid boot issues. This will be a big performance difference because the x86 only support a little over 3 GB of RAM vs 16GB for the x64 version of Home Premium/Professional/Ultimate.Once Windows has installed, Is there some safe way to get the whole 320gb. his comment is here Windows will take up ~ 7-15GB after the guide is complete.

What i'm doing wrong ? We also provide an extensive Windows 7 tutorial section that covers a wide range of tips and tricks. minus one star because the software you need to use it as two drives doesn't come with the software and the link they provide with the usb drive... Thanks.

Vitor on August 2, 2008 2:03 am I bought a 1TB drive to replace my 320GB one in my PC.

Tony_c on June 30, 2008 8:56 am why was is shipped from Samsung like this?

Tom Walter on July 15, 2008 8:53 pm Encountered odd problem and tool didn't even recognize drive. I decided to do a clean re-install of Windows to avoid sorting through and manually clearing out junk on my HDD as it was near full.

I was ready to send it back as faulty, but this program fixed it first time! I'll try to install win 7 to my new partition and let's see how it goes.. Oh, and here is a list of programs that I usually have installed and use on my PC: (link) System Setup after Installation: -> (Click to show) Be sure to see Users who would like to carry Windows 7 on a USB flash drive can follow our how to carry Windows 7 on USB flash drive guide.UPDATE: If you're having issues with

If you do use hibernation mode, you can still shrink the hibernation file size. For a 1tb drive alone it would be steep, but paired with a 120gb SSD, a steal in my humble opinion.-Performance has been great so far (~1 week of use). Click the "Control Panel" option.
