Dell Inspiron 1720 running windows 7 with a small hard drive. Want to move to a bigger hard drive. Thought it would be easy, but problems so far
The original OEM drive has 4 partions 2 small ones, then the ntfs c drive then a 'mediarecovery' partition.
Using shadow protect ,I imaged each partition.
I restored all 4 partitions and when that didn't work restored just the c drive. I'd get 0xc000225 error I think both times.
Then I tried drive image XML which took 9 hours to clone the one partition to the other (90gb data on 100gb drive to a new 500gb hard drive.
Any advice what apps and settings I need to be able to clone the bootable portion and have it work?
