I want to clone a 2.5inch HD to an mSATA HD. It contains my Windows 8 Pro system partition.

The only thing that will change physically is the drive itself. However i expect that will be a bit of big deal as the drivers will be loaded for the 2.5inch seagate drive.

So before I buy the mSATA I want to ensure there is a painless process to clone, then update drivers for disk... otherwise Im not going to bother as it's too much hassle reloading everything (software).

I dont want to get the drive, clone it over and then try to boot from mSATA and get some disk not found message or something and be stuck because it''s trying to use Seagate 2.5inch drivers from the clone image with what will be a Mushkin mSATA.
