Advise on MacBook Pro using Hard Disc Manager 11 Suite
Last night I purchased HDM 11 Suite to clone my hard drive on my MacBook pro, running snow leopard and windows 7 ultimate via boot camp, to a larger hard drive. It went very well. I can't believe how easy it was. I just used the copy hard disc function an everything worked. Considering how much time I wasted trying to get Winclone to copy my bootcamp partition...I give this software a 10 out of 10 so far.
Now on to the next part of this. I removed the DVD optical drive and installed another hard drive there using Owc's data doubler. My goal is to get my bootcamp with windows 7 running on it, using the entire drive for windows, and the other drive just for Mac OSX. What is the best way to do this? I was thinking I should clone the entire drive, so that the boot partition gets copied to the new drive, and then deleting the Mac OSX from it, and delete the bootcamp partition from the other drive. That would leave me with a 200 mb partition with the boot info and osx one one drive and the other would have a 200 mb boot partition with the bootcamp windows 7 on it. Does that sound right or am I making this more difficult than it needs to be...in other words should I just copy my bootcamp partition only to the new drive in the optical bay and then delete the bootcamp off the other drive? I hope this makes sense.
