I have a similar situation in my work PC. I managed to misplace the closing knob on the rest of the seat so it's... doing that. It's been fine so far! XD

You gonna see if you can get a longer cable or perhaps some sort of cable extension so you can house the drive properly?
As for OS cloning, I have no idea what that is but I guess you were duplicating/copying the existing OS on the hard drive already in the computer onto the new one? Is that because you're using the new one as the primary hard drive and the old one as just extra storage for things that don't require the speed of the SSD?

The new drive is the bottom one. Nah, it's just gonna chill there; the extension I'd need is, like, 2 inches, so I don't think they make them that short. And yes, the cloning is exactly what you describe. Apparently, the recommended practice is SSD for OS, HDD for storage, and I had an HDD, so I needed to get the OS off the old drive while still making sure it was, you know, working. That had ALL SORTS OF PROBLEMS GETTING IT TO WORK! But, I did, got into the BIOS to change the boot order so that it tried to boot of the new drive, and ot works, and it appears all my files are fine, as well, so all's well that ends well.
Ah, I thought it was gonna be hanging more than that. Better off just finding something to place under it for support so it isn't just suspended in the air like that. Tongue
I never knew it was actually a lot of work to transfer an OS. I just figured it was some simple process where you just tell Windows "Hey, I want you on this drive instead of this one" and then it'll just do what needs to be done. XD

I have no idea what you mean by this and I've been racking my brain over it for the last five minutes. Huh


Was hoping to have my final finished by now so I can get photos of it outside before nightfall, but it looks like that won't be happening. Fortunately I'm not presenting tomorrow so I do have tomorrow to finish up; if I was presenting however I would be in deep water right now. Suffer

Well, technically, there is: You can make a system image of your drive, and then reinstall windows using that system image. It's great! ...IF IT F***ING WORKED! Yeah, no, every time I tried, it gave me an error! So, yeah, third party software to clone the disk; it was FRUSTRATING!

Edit: Oh, silly me, forgot to mention that because the format of the Drive Partition was the wrong one, IT DIDN'T WORK THE FIRST TIME! At least, I think that's the reason? I switched from MBR to GPT, and then it decided to actually booy rather than go through an infinite boot sequence.

I've never understood why hard drives can be formatted in different ways. I guess that it's probably because certain files can only function on certain formats but I feel like if that's the case it would've been better for everyone to just make their stuff work on a single format just to make everything easier.
