Re: dual boot

I ended up using EaseUS partition master 13.8 to migrate/ clone everything. It did the partitioning etc automatically. I did have to pay for the version that did all that but in the end it was worth the $30

Re: dual boot

I had the exact same issue. Turns out I forgot to allocate the free space as you do when you wipe a disk with secure wipe or simply writing zero's. Check to make sure you haven't done the same and use system clone as you are cloning the OS. Im not sure what your refering to or how to check. In the ...

Re: dual boot

There are two options listed. One is " Clone" and the other is "system clone". I assume system clone is the one I want but when I select that option my new drive shows up with 0 bytes free of 951 gb. This is after I ran a drive wipe. I dont see an option to format the drive. Is that the problem? doe...

Re: dual boot

I am aware. As I had it set up none of the SATA ports were disabled. I did go ahead and switch to the M.2_2 slot simply becuase it has double the bandwidth of the other one. Now I do have SATA 5 and 6 disabled. Im going to try again and see if it works this time.

dual boot

So I decided I wanted to upgrade to a PCIe SSD mostly because I needed to go up to a 1TB drive from a 500GB SATA. I have the new drive in hand and it occured to me that I should be able to do a dual boot type system so my girlfriend can have what would essentially be her own computer. She works from...

Re: crashes

I may be doing something wrong or not doing something at all. When you say "start up the driver" in safe mode what exactly are you doing? I restarted the system in safe mode and went to the device manager and there were a few items that showed the yellow sign with ! in it and all of those said that ...
