I had a PC running out of disk so decided to add a new drive. So now I have an elderly IDE drive and the (new ) SATAII one. The old drive has C: on it and I would like to move this to the new drive. Both drives can be seen by the BIOS but the new drive cannot be put into the boot sequence - so is not bootable
Mini-tool Partition Wizard (is very like Partition Magic was) has no facility to do this that I can find and in fact with the aid of Google it seems that the simplest means of achieving this is simply to reinstall Win 8 to a new partition on the new drive (using the ISO file burnt to DVD) and take the hit of reactivation and Update downloads.
I had been hoping to simply copy the contents of C: to the new drive then change the boot device - but this seems impossible. Is there a way to do this though?
