    Dual boot with cloning issue


    I want to take the working 120gig kingston with Win 7 and clone it to a completely new drive 240gig drive (NOTE : the drive already has a working copy of Win 10 on it that can be erased) :

    Looking to figure out how to


    i) FORMAT the 240gig drive for this procedure
    ii) what partition to create when cloning from a 120gig Win 7 to a clean 240gig drive (no partitions)
    iii) lastly CLONE the working 120 gig win 7 to the 240 gig drive.

    From this thread :
    Weird occurrence - desktop won't load, spinning wheel etc

    i) it will get formatted when you clone the original drive.
    ii) you don't create any partition. The partition(s) get created when you clone.
    iii) Macrium Reflect Free cloning function, or MiniTool Partition Wizard copy partition function.
