I would like to move my Windows 7 OS partition from Hard Drive A to Hard Drive B (the boot partition is on Hard Drive C). My game plan is:
- Connect all three hard drives to the computer.
- Use Partition Wizard (the bootable CD edition) to copy the OS partition from Hard Drive A to Hard Drive B.
- Instruct the boot partition to look for the OS in Hard Drive B (can it be done using bcdedit?)
- Extend the size of the partition (using the Windows 7 Disk Manager) to fit the entire size of Hard Drive B.
Should this work? Is there anything I'm missing?
EDIT: after taking a second look, the Partition Wizard guys are warning against copying the Windows 7 system partition using the bootable CD. This means I will probably go with copying the disk instead of the partition in step 2.
