    Upgrading to an SSD


    I have a hard drive with three partitions; Windows 7 Home Premium (Primary), Windows 10 Home (Logical), and Windows 10 Pro (Logical). I want to upgrade to an SSD; however, I do not want to just clone my old hard drive/partitions onto the SSD. I only want to move the two Windows 10 partitions, not the Windows 7. The desired end state would be the Windows 10 Pro partition as the Primary (boot drive) and the Windows 10 Home as the Logical. Is there an easy way to do this? I know I could just partition/reinstall everything onto the SSD, but I do not have that kind of time.
    Thanks for any assistance…

    WELL, that's the kind of nightmare you create for yourself when you put more than one OS on a single hard drive.
    I never do that!!! I might have several OS's on a single PC, but each OS gets its own hard drive. That way there's never any confusion about what OS goes where. The F12 boot menu is all I need to get to the OS I want to work on.
    And, last but now least.... if one drive crashes, and they all will eventually, you don't loose everything.
    It's so much better to be SAFE than Sorry.

    To get one HD with One OS to an SSD, a simple CLONE does the trick.

    Good Luck!
