treewind Tech: Moving to a new disk (6) RE: Tech: Moving to a new disk 05 Jun 14

I have my doubts about a straight copy actually working for Windows, so re-installation is likely to be your only option.

An SSD for your system, programs and swap file with conventional HD for all your data is a very good combination. Fast boot and all your applications load quickly, and not too much write wear on your SSD, if you worry about that sort of thing.

Also you could dual boot Windows and Linux. One of my home systems ha an SSD partitioned with Windows C: on /dev/sda1 and Linux '/' on /dev/sda5, and a HD partitioned with Windows D: on one half and /home on the other half.

That's definitely a re-install, and you need to install Windows first, then your Linux installer will put the Windows system on its grub menu.

Oh, and somewhere to backup all your data while you're doing it...
