I Bought Msata 256 GB and I want to make image to the old disk to the new one.
I have Sata Disk to make the image if needed .....  
I tried to make image to USB disk with Ghost and then to restore it to the new one but the OS won't start :(

Use CloneZilla to make an image of all the partitions on your original disk to the USB disk. Then replace the original disk with the new one and again use CloneZilla to restore all partitions to the new disk.

If it boots after that, you can use diskmanagement to increase the size of your OS or Data partition.

If it doesn't boot, boot to GParted and make sure the correct partition has the boot flag set.

Didyou backup the whole drive or just a system partition? If the whole drive was imaged and restored then it must work. What error you get when trying too boot the new drive?
Have a look on Paragon Backup & Recovery 14 Free. It works 100%.

Thanks guys,
I made Clone Disk with 'Acronis True Image' from M-Sata 128GB to other SATA disk and later from the SATA to the new M-Sata 256GB.
'Acronis True Image' know to clone all drives (System drive 1GB , OS & Recovery Partition).

Best Regards,
Osher
