Thanks. I have to get into ssd as even games are not liking the old hd's.
My sole way of backing up my total system was cloning, plus the win upgrades of course.
Cloning has always worked for me in getting into newer faster bigger HD all this time.

Now, I don't want win11 that new systems come with and have priced out parts that may still fit in my case. But almost a complete rebuild inside.

I have been reading about how to clone hd's to ssd's and going from mbr to gpt. I'm hoping more recent clone software will do this. A round about way I'm sure, but having two ssd's, and a available sata port may work. I'm thinking pulling the second ssd out, plugging in the c: hd and booting up with win11. Then maybe cloning c: hd to the win11 ssd which would wipe the ssd and clone c:/ win10 to it, then set the ehci in the ehci bios for booting ehci. If this is successful, it should be fairly simple to clone my second hd to the second ssd and have essentially the same 2 drive system again. Fortunately, almost all new MB's still have a sata somewhere on it. Even ssd sata drives, but why pay that kind of money and have only sata speeds out of a ssd?

Think that will work? I really really do not want win11, but that may be forced soon enough to shove win12 down our throats.

Be safe and nice reading from you. 'I don't have audio on, so I don't 'hear from' you.''
