I have a win7x64 desktop on an 2TB WD HDD and a 64GB Mushkin Chronos drive configured with Intel SRT in enhanced mode. This means I had to install initially with bios setup in raid.
I'm going to clone this using Apricorn's cloning software/hardware to a new 240 SSD I have from previously cloning a HDD on my laptop.
What I don't know is if having the BIOS setup for RAID from the SRT is going to cause a problem when I clone.
I'm thinking the steps I need to follow are:
- Disable SRT
- Shutdown and remove 60gb SSD.
- Power up
- Clone HDD to new SSD
- Remove HDD
- Add only new SSD
- Power on and jump to BIOS (edit, this was missing)
- Change BIOS back to ahci?
- save changes
- Cross fingers
- Power on
If there are any other concerns I should know about, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
