    How to Clone Dual-Boot HDD to SDD Using Macrium Reflect?


    Hello,
    I want to clone a 500GB internal HDD with three partitions to a 2TB SDD using Macrium Reflect.
    Windows 10 boot view:
    Vista (D:) Active, Data (E:) Primary, Windows 10 (C:) Primary.
    I created a Macrium Rescue Disk from within Windows 10. When booting into WinPE using the Rescue Disk, the drive letters are changed to:
    Vista (C:) Active, Data (D:) Primary, Windows 10 (E:) Primary.
    Should I simply put the SSD in a USB enclosure, then clone the entire HDD over to it?
    Will the drive letters be wrong on the clone, and if so, can I change them afterwards? Is that even an issue?
    Note: Vista is the original OS. I am keeping the partition as I want to install a Linux distro in it later on.

    Thank you,
    Eric
