I had a new machine fail too many times so I am getting a replacement with identical machine and I want to clone my hard drive bit by bit. What is the best approach to do this?
- I may not be able to boot from the original hard drive. Is there any solutions where I can attach the hard drive to a third machine and create an image or directly copy it to the other drive without booting? In addition I may have to have a technician do it and I don't want to tell him my account password.
- The machines are one of those new fancy ultrabooks with Windows 8 keys embedded into the motherboard
- I have purchased and installed Windows 8 Pro upgrade any issues transferring?
