I tried to clone my bootcamp OSX/WIN7 HDD to a smaller SSD drive but failed on clonezilla and acronis.
I first prepped my HDD using
gParted and made a smaller footprint (see picture below).
Clonezilla, on restore parts, kept copying only the first segment and not the entire list of parts.
Acronis on clone setting, had errors as you can see from the picture below. The first secgment sdc1 kept coming out as a failure
At the end OSX was bootable but windows never showed up in my select list. Also when i tried to repair windows, an error message kept coming up
windows cannot be reparied because of GPT
Tried this method but with no luck. When i ran
rEFit an error came up from the
partition tool setting.
Does anyone have any tips on cloning a larger drive into a smaller SSD with bootcamp?
update: sdc1 from the 2nd image did NOT come from factory. Im trying a second ssd with acronis and getting the same result.
With clonezilla, i had to first create 4 partitions to mirror my original disk using gParted.
But then i could NOT boot to windows, got stuck on a page that said "disk error, press any key to restart"
