    I know a bit about building pc's myself and that but i can say i'm officially stuck on this one.

    Basically i have a HP Laptop and i want to swap out the 250gb 7200 RPM standard hardrive for a Corsair 120GB SSD.

    The part where i'm stuck at is on my current drive HP there is a recovery partition and also a HP tool partition (See picture below)

    [​IMG]

    What i need to do is pass those partitions over to the new SSD drive. Does anyone have any idea on how to do this?

    I also have a 10tb network server if thats any use for transferring files.

    Thanks

    Those partitions are also on ur HDD, so removing the HDD will remove them from your PC... I hate that companies make secret partitions, just right click my computer, manage, go to disk management, and delete those partitions...

    I have the Laptop from HP too. Heres what to do. You need the Rescue manager to copy entire recovery partition to DVDs. Mine took 5 for Win7 recovery.

    And for copying exactly Drive C....use Norton ghost. It creates an image of your drive which you can later copy to your New SSD.

    If you got any problem ask in the thread..i will be happy to help you.

    Cheers

    can use macrium reflect (it's free) create image of entire drive...
    restore image to new drive

    let us know how it goes

    didn't the SSD drive come with cloning software? manufacturer should have it
