Here's why. Windows may not like changes to the boot drive like this. It has some odd (not really) idea about the boot drive location/connections.
Be sure to test after the clone.
In parting, I do something similar but use CLONEZILLA to write an image file to my external HDD. This way I can write more than one backup copy out. To restore I install a new blank drive and use CLONEZILLA to copy in the image file.
I have a windows vista home premium installed in a ide harddrive and what I am
hoping to doe is clone
it onto a internal sata harddrive as a
backup I was going to use the sata lead off the cd rom while I was doing the
clone then take out my sata again should
this be ok I have easeus todo back up
