I have 2 x SSD on my computer and 1 x HDD.
I started off with windows on a SSD and manjaro on the other and use the HDD just for storage.
The whole thing is quite messy as to start with window and linux were in different boot modes. I think linux is EUFI and windows is…something else.
I’ve known for a while that my linux SSD is on the fritz, I have to boot into linux via the bios and select the drive, and thats only when the drive shows up, othertimes when the drive does show up its a 50/50 weather it will boot up into linux or i have to go through the whole thing again.
I was looking at a new SSD to replace the linux one but got thinking, I can’t even remember the last time i booted into windows. I think I booted into it once when I wanted to burn a new manjaro CD and not since.
I was thinking if possible could I use Gparted to clone the linux drive, wipe over windows and put the clone over that? Ive seen videos and tutorials of people copy and pasting partitions but not whole drives. I can’t even copy anything in manjaro while its mounted so im not sure how i would go about this.
Also, is this the best way? Sure I could wipe windows and throw in the CD and do it that way but I’ve got tweeks to pulseaudio and nvidia that took me a while to do and dont want to do all that again.
Thanks for advice.
