I bought a 500 GB (6-Gbit per second) SATA SSD to move my Windows 7 64-bit partition (and the 100 MB BCD partition) from a HDD. As that HDD has other partitions that I want to keep, the old HDD is not going to be removed.
Once new SSD was plugged into the motherboard and Win7 booted, I created a 100 MB primary partition on the SSD. Then I used CloneZilla ONLY to clone the BCD partition and the Windows 7 (
C:) partition into the new SSD and changed the BIOS to boot from the new SSD disk.
The partitions are
SSD: [sdc1] BCD [sdc2] \Windows HDD: [sda1] BCD [sda2] \Windows [sda3] G:
But now the system boots from the new 100 MB BCD partition
sdc1 (that is fine) but Windows 7 is started from the old HDD partition
sda2, not from the cloned SDD one
sdc2. In fact, the new Windows partition (
sdc2) is labeled as
I did not manage to rename the Windows
C: disk partition.
I guess the BCD partition keeps the UUID (or similar) of the partition which Windows boots from, but I'm not familiar with it.
How can I make Windows 7 to boot from
Is it just a Windows relabelling disk issue?
Thanks in advance
