View Full Version : Dual Boot: Upgrade from hell

23-06-2003, 08:29 PM

i am soon getting a replacement for my current hard disk and need to move the OS and the associated data/partitions to the new disk.
I have access to another PC with 2 IDE channels spare so transfer is possible.

here is the problem. On another disk (6gb) i have win98 which dual boots with win2k (on the 40GB) which is the disk i want to replace/upgrade with the new 80GB. How do i transfer the boot record and the OS itself ?
Will win2k moan at me with a BSOD if i just ghost the drive partitions ?

ideas ?

Partition Magic Should do it.

No, Ghost will do just fine!

You will want to do a 'Clone' option :-)
