I have a Windows7 problem, but since my guess is that there's a linux solution i'm posting here...
She Who Must Be Obeyed has an old Win7 box with a small HDD. I want to migrate everything onto a (considerably bigger) SSD, which would replace the old drive.
However, the supplied software (Acronis) refuses to 'see' the SSD when connected through a USB dock; same for a couple of other Windoze applications.
My guess is that this is because the sector sizes are different on the two drives. If i boot the box into linux with a live CD, would just dd-ing the HDD to the SSD leave me with a working (Win-bootable) SSD? Or is the sector issue likely to stuff this as well?
