As you can see, a disk is made up of partitions. You need to mirror those partitions onto your SSD but the main partition (C:) will be smaller. You have my number you can give me a call.

That is what I know due to Ghost copy a long time ago. I think my OS is on the SSD (new gaming laptop). Or should I just get a separate HDD to copy my current laptop for the just in case? This thing is noisy on boot up but its a little over a year old. Cheaper HP laptop but it did the job for Halloween. Just couldn't afford to lose it for Christmas since it is my sequencing laptop.

I will pm you before calling you but it wont be until sometime after the Expo. Thanks for the assistance.

Oh no, not a HP. The older HP's have whitelists and replacing parts is a headache if not impossible. I don't know if the newer ones are any better but I tend to steer clear of HP.

Budget constraints at the time. Had to keep ahold of my $ for the Spring sale. My Dell lasted for 17 years, it could "almost" run the show but the processor couldn't keep up. Core 2 I believe. It came with Vista if I remember. LOL

The only thing I have done to this laptop is upgrade the memory.

I have an older 2012 HP workstation laptop that came with Win7 Pro that I tried to upgrade for the grandkids a couple of years ago. I upgraded the memory but when I tried to put a SSD in it a blue box popped open and stated "HP does not recognize the installed device, please call HP Customer Support." Come to find out, Whitelist. If it is not on that list then it will not work.

No, I would if they ever held it in Atlanta. I mean, I have relatives in Dallas I just don't like them.  ?

Heck I would travel from Florida to Atlanta if they had the Expo there too. I look for any excuse I can to go up to Blue Ridge and Cherry log Mountain area normally I go in February but I wouldn't mind taking a summer trip up there if they were to do an expo in Atlanta.
