I need to try to use 1 hard disk – which already has a Windows 7 installation on Desktop -n a notebook. Disk is not divided and only have 40 gb free space.
What I want is
- Unplug SSD from desktop, plug it to notebook. Install an OS there (which I can delete manually later), see it works.
- Unplug it from notebook, plug it to desktop. Open Win 7, Delete other OS’s files. Get rid of boot sequence so Windows 7 can boot alone with no extra key pressing.
Is it doable? If yes how?
Also if possible can i trick the notebook to boot The Windows 7 installed on Desktop? This will make this very less time consuming.
Goal: Use the Desktop’s SSD to run an OS on notebook without losing the current data and OS setup.
Ok If anyone needs to the same thing for any reason heres the answer.
- I used “MiniTool Partition Wizard Home Edition” to partition my drive Split 20 GB to do the job.No data loss.
- Install the SSD to the laptop. (I tested the Desktops OS just to see what will happen. A quick BlueScreen(0.5 sec) then auto-restart is answer to it)
- Install “Windows 7” on Laptop to the new 20 GB partition. It worked like a charm.
- Put the SSD back to the Desktop. And Now I am writing this.
Now all i need is to get rid of the booter at the starter. Then i can merge the partition and my SSD state will be the same at the start(Or at least similar enough if you know what i mean 🙂
