    I'm glad you got it going. I read it like you were against moving the drive over to the HDD slot for some reason. Anyway, good outcome thanks to theog.

    @ popeye

    If you leave two OS drives in place then use EasyBCD, you would need two Licinses.

    I HAVE DONE IT. LISTEN HERE!!!!! PARAGON 14 (NOT 15 cause it has errors) WORKS!!! believe me i spent 24 continuous hours trying to make cloning work...i tried every software i could find...NOTHING WORKS.

    PARAGON HARD DISK MANAGER SUITE 14 IS THE ANSWER!!!!!
