    Is it possible to move Windows OS to D drive on Panasonic notebook?

    As of now, windows OS is saved on the C drive of my Panasonic laptop which I wish to transfer to D drive in order to free up the drive for some other purpose. Is it possible to make such a transfer?

    Why not but keeping in mind that the system only boots from c: drive which is a default, and if you transfer the most important program,
    the Operating System to an unsignificant drive, your whole system will refuse to even start.

    The C: drive is called a bootable drive and the Windows which is the bootable Operating System, MUST be in this drive in order to perform its tasks.

    So it is not a prudent thinking that you will move Windows from C: drive to any other drive.

    Hi friend,

    The answer to your query is YES, you can move the OS of your windows from one partition to another.

    All you need to do is perform Cloning of your drive.


    Here are the steps that would help you in getting the solution to your query:-

    1. Insert the new drive in the system, test it good, make sure it works.

    2. Clone the original disk to the new disk as a 1:1 copy, leave the programs disk D, like it was.

    3. Use some softwares like ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE, and the CLONE DISK function.

    4. If you have a WD drive you can get a WD version for free, it will do this fine.

    5. Set the BIOS to boot to the new drive, test it throughly.


    Hope i have helped you in getting relevant information.

    All the best

    Thanking you..
