Re: Upgrading Primary Hard Drive with Vista OS
Either use TrueImage HOME )version 11.0 build 8,027) OR the utility supplied
by the drive manufacturer. This utility is included with all retail drives
that I have ever purchased.
If you purchased an OEM drive, go to the manufacturers web site and download
the utility and install it on the proper bootable media for your computer.
