I recently purchased an Intel SSD drive and could not get the included Acronis software to detect an Intel drive. So I tried Ghost from Symantec and lets just say 'Ghost isn't what it used to be'.
I then decided to give Paragons 'Migrate OS to SSD' Software a try and it did not work either. After a nightmare trying to order the software, with German Bank charging my card, etc., I got the software thanks to a very nice person at Paragon software deciding to give me a complimentary copy out of what I can only assume was pity.
I had already attempted to shrink my OS boot partition from 1TB to a more manageable size and did get it to around 186GB, which was not small enough to use Windows built in imaging software with my 160GB (149GB formatted) hard drive. So on to the Paragon solution.
I downloaded, installed and ran the software. A few prompts later it was completely done. The entire image was in reality 58GB and so took about 8 minutes, if that, to complete. After swapping the boot order in the system BIOS to reflect the new SSD, the system still booted from the original OS HDD and not the SSD. The files were on the SSD—the directory structure and content was right, but the long and the short of it is that the software did not work as advertised.
I tried checking to see that partition had not been made hidden by the software and it had not. I tried all of the above mentioned bootrec and bcdboot options and still 'no joy'. I was left with an OS that would crash on boot saying 'Autochk program not found. Skipping Autocheck.' then bluescreen for .5 seconds and reboot to the same end.
On the birght side the fresh install took about 11 minutes. The reconfigure and data transfer has taken much longer, though I now have that 'NEW INSTALL' feel and I like it! Anyway, Migrating the OS to SSD did not work for me but may work for you. I don't know.
