Copy Acer Aspire recovery partition to new drive and "recover" the system?

Post by AlexK on 20th August 2010, 4:11 pm

Hey guys!

I'm having this problem to get an operating system on my new Momentus XT drive. I tried cloning my current drive onto the new one, but it takes like 30 hours and after about 10-15 it has lost connection twice and cancelled the whole thing.

So I'm wondering, is it possible to copy/clone the recovery partition from my old drive onto the new one and boot it up, installing a vista system on it in the process? The recovery partition is an EISA partition, I tried simply copying it with EASEUS Partition Master, but that didn't work out, the computer wouldn't boot it up.

Thanks in advance!
Regards

Nevermind, it worked out.. started an hdd cloning session, it cloned partition after partition so I waited until the recovery partition was finished, cancelled the process and started up..worked like a charm! =)
