  1. Disk Image current to new system


    I currently have a laptop that was originally windows 8. 1 terabyte hard drive
    Currently has been upgraded to Version 1903 Build 18362.418

    I plan to get another laptop with the same size hard drive but have seen offers containing 2 terabyte.
    after setting up new system I need to do a disk image of the old system and restore it to the new system. this is due to needing the original C drive containing original programs and shortcuts. I don't think I have some of the software for all programs.

    attached is a copy of the old disk management system. I plan to delete Recovery D but wonder if any of the others could be removed before doing the Image Creation.

    :)

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    4. Proceed to restore then Shutdown and disconnect the old HD and replace with the new HD
    5. Boot up with your new HD.

      clean
      exit
      exit
    3. From Macrium, The disk with Windows currently running will have the partitions as shown in your screen shot above. Click on Clone this disk...
      A Windows popup, click on select a disk to clone to...
      Click on the SSD
    4. Select the 100MB "System Reserved", drag and drop to the destination (SSD)
    5. Select the 60GB "C Drive", drag and drop to the destination(SSD) next to the System Reserved

    System Image Problem


    I'm getting a head start in case you get on early.

    Can you post camera pics to your thread from your phone?

    There will be steps later that require attention to detail and I'd feel better if I could see what's on your screen. I had to try the steps more than once when I tested the process and I'd like to avoid that on your machine.

    Here's what I'd like to do for the Macrium Rescue steps later on in the process
    I'll post the the step, you'll post an picture of the Macrium screen,
    I'll echo same screen back if I see something that needs changing or I'll just say Go Ahead

    When I confirm that the Macrium screen, you'll make any changes I've highlighted and THEN execute the step

    Here's where you begin today's session, we'll get as far as we get and then pick up when you get back home.

    Step 1: Safeguard the System Image by moving it to a new folder

    1. Connect the Seagate exp drive

    2. File Explorer: Navigate to the Seagate drive

    3. Create a new Folder named 1_sysImage

    4. Move WindowsImageBackup to 1_sysImage

    Step 2: List the VHDs in the System Image

    1. File Explorer: Navigate to 1_sysImage\WindowsImageBackup\machineName\Backup date-time

    2. Press the Type column to sort by Type

    3. Post a screen shot
