I recently bought a Dell XPS M1730 off craigslist to use exclusively for music production/sound engineering. Initially it seemed to work fine. That was until I took it home and realized why he was so hasty to give it to me, I tried downloading programs I needed on there and it immediately started telling me I didn't have enough storage space. Upon further investigation, I realized there were 2 hard drives, a 500 gb hhd with no formatting and a 15 gb SSD which was the primary that was running Windows 7 Ultimate. So being inexperienced, I tried switching the hard drives, hoping I could switch which one was the primary, change the settings, and run windows through it, which most of you in this community will know, does not work. Then I tried cloning Windows 7 onto the 500 gb hhd, but more issues arose, I tried using Macrium to clone the Windows already on the small hard drive, but apparently it needs more space, because according to Macrium it needs 3 gb to function, but I can't do that without erasing crucial files on the ssd running windows. I also tried doing it through an external hard drive but Macrium would not cooperate with that either; it would not allow me to clone onto the hhd.
So in a nutshell I want to clone Windows 7 onto the 500 GB hard drive and make it my primary and wipe the 15 GB.
Also I have a 500 GB Toshiba external hard drive which could assist in this endeavor.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!
Also note: I'm broke, so any answers along the lines of buy this or buy that will not help me in the least.
