Clone dual boot drive (Mac/Bootcamp) that can't boot?
I have an iMac with a hard drive that (partially) failed.
It was loaded with the iMac OS (which I didn't use) and bootcamp. I was able to remove it from the iMac, hook it up to a PC and get all the data off of it that I needed. It seems to be pretty unreliable, and will not boot.
I purchased an SSD and would like to to install it in the iMac, running windows. I tried cloning the Bootcamp partition (EaseUS Todo Free), but installed in the iMac it just game me a folder icon with a question mark, would not even boot to a drive selector screen.
I'd prefer not to repurchase windows or Mac OS, although it looks like I could get Mac OS pretty cheap.
The SSD is the same size as the old HDD.
I've tried loading the old drive as a USB (USB-SATA cable) but the iMac didn't recognize it. I'm thinking my next steps would be to try a mac bootable USB flash drive (of course I can't find one at the moment), take both drives to Simply Mac and tell them to make it go, or. . .
