Create Partition Table on SSD

A solid-state drive (SSD) is a new generation of storage device used in computers specially for speed to tranfer data, but the winner in speed is The M.2 specification supports NVM Express (NVMe) , in another post i comment about M.2

I describe how to clone data from old mechanic Disk  to a SSD

First your download and use Rufus to create a USB bootable, and use Norton ghost  for specially partition Windows ,gparted for delete the other partition


  • SSD a Kingston A400 960 GB
  • laptop HP Pavilion 15aw002la
  • USB bootable whit clonezilla, ghost, gparted
  • A Caddy HDD
  • Two  Sata controller o connector (Another PC )

The most important is you identify which is SSD / HDD from Sata connection, if you connect the disks in another  PC , you should put SSD in Sata 0 and HDD Sata 1  connector

The objective is you identify in Cloning software /sda or /sdb , the source and destination

Is complicated create a Table Partition in the new disc because generally  in capacity of data HDD is larger the solution Clonezilla and the option  -icds

Initialize USB whit clonezilla

Choose EXPERT mode and enable the “-icds” option. You need to also choose the option “Resize partitional table proportionally” in one of the following menus.


Ok after 25 minutes a 1 tb disk is cloning in a new SSD , generally whit the most important partition Windows NTFS.  I had an error  in clonezilla  , this is because some data have bad sector , but the solution is cloning again whit Symantec Ghost, but you have the partition table created and is easy now identify the partition

And generally all the Data and configuration, licences , is cloning
