To start off I'm newish to working on computers but i'm excited to learn more about it
I recently was given 2 laptops by my parents so i took parts out to upgrade my current laptop.(there's had missing keys, screen wouldnt turn on, etc) so one of the laptops i was given has a much larger hard drive in it(a 320 GB Seagate HDD) and i reformatted it, removed the partitions on it (except a 16 GB Healthy Recovery Partition that i cannot remove) I want to clone my current hard drive into it which leads me to a problem.
I've looked into videos on how to use macrium, I've watched numerous tutorial videos on how to safely clone my hard drive. but I have been unable to get an answer on how the healthy safety partition will effect cloning(the 16 gig one that I want to upgrade to)
is it safe to clone my current hard drive to it with this safety partition?
why can't i get rid of that final partition(i reformatted the hard drive fixed the un alocated space i just dont want this to cause any damage).
I'm using macrium free for my cloning process with the information i provided will i be safe to do so?(running windows 10 pro)
please any help to a newbie is appreciated!
