Copy question

Post by JoRene41 »

If I copy a bootable partition to a new partition on another connected hard drive, will it boot if I create a boot edit for it, or do I have the do an image of the partition and restore it to the new partition?
Or will neither work? I'm trying to move my OS from the second hard drive the the first, thank you

Both methods will work. Copy or image/restore. Then use Boot Edit.

You might need a BCD Edit. Or not.
