Default Re: Upgrade to ssd on lga775 board

I know I did it to my system at one time when I was running Vista... and I think I might have posted it somewhere in an existing thread, but I don't believe I made an actual guide to do it.

Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the under my post

If you do clone, make sure the partition(s) are smaller than the side of the SSD. Then you can run CloneZilla; I HIGHLY recommend doing a disk to image, and then an image to disk clone. It takes longer... but it's safer. I tried doing a disk-to-disk clone from HDD to SSD on my friend's laptop... needless to say I spent about 12+ hours trying to get his original HDD to boot because something went wrong during the clone and it affected his original drive.

After you clone though, if you're on Windows 7, run a chkdsk c: /b

The /b switch was made after Win7 for cloning drives; it resets the badsector flags, and re-scans the drive.
My c partition is 50gb so it should be fine. Thanks for the tip and help. And everyone else as well ofcourse.
