Re: Edge 13 cannot upgrade harddisk

timworld2005, welcome to the forum,

 

you need to clone to the new hard drisk with it inserted in your system. If you are using Ghost you need to use the -IB switch.

 

If you search the boards you will find a plethora of threads about cloning.

 

As you have purchased a Seagate drive you may want to use Acronis, Seagate has their own version called Disk Wizard,

 

Hope this helps

Andy

Not alot, but Acronis imho is easier to use.
