I bought a new hard drive. My Windows setup already had extensive amount of software and configurations on it that I didn’t want to remake. It worked well, which was rare, so I wanted to keep it.
Winclone is an excellent free tool that lets you do just that! Unfortunately there wasn’t much confirmation on the inter-web that it has been done with Snow Leopard and Windows 7 64-bit. So I tried just that and it worked flawlessly!
- Get the software from the website
- Go in preferences, back up to dmg but uncompressed. Remove the pagefile.sys and keep BCD and boot.ini checkboxes
- Select your bootcamp drive as source and save image to an external hard drive
- Put in your new drive and get your OS X working
- Use the bootcamp assistant to make a new bootcamp partition of whichever size you want
- Get Winclone again, go to restore, select your previous image and your new partition to restore to
- Boot! The disk check might take a while…
