I bought a new, larger SSD and I want to move over my current OS install to the larger one and start using that.
I've used Macrium Reflect to image my current drive to an external drive. I've also tried simply copying the partitions to the new drive. With the copying partition method, when I try to boot the drive, I briefly see a low-res loading animation, then a black screen with the mouse cursor on it. If I image the new drive with my backup image, the lock screen is stuck in a loop fading in and the mouse cursor is constantly in the busy state. Plus this leaves the extra space of the new drive unallocated. And with both of these methods, I get visible System Reserved drives, which is distracting.
I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I've always feared moving OS installs and this is precisely why. I've already lost a USB drive doing this. Help.
