Using Easus Partition Manager to clone Windows 7
While Kingston Technology recommends using Acronis and the 2.5 inch disk enclosure, I decided to install the SSDNow drive in a free 3.5 inch drive bay. I needed to attach the 2.5 inch to 3.5 inch brackets, which was a bit fiddly. Once the Sata II cable and power were connected to the SSDNow drive and the PC case closed my Bios was able to detect the new drive. I then started Windows as normal and fired up Easus Partition Manager.
Solid atate disks (SSD) offer an easy, and relatively inexpensive means of boosting the performance of an older PC. The SSD behaves like a standard hard disk, but it uses memory chips instead of hard disc platters, so it is significantly faster, quieter and more reliable.. In Windows, if the operating system and paged memory are migrated onto the SSD, the PC's performance should increase significantly. It is possible to run several operating systems, like Ubuntu and Windsows 7 using separate partitions on the SSD. You will then use a boot manager, like the one that installs in Windows, to select which operating system launches.
