Re: WARNING: AOMEI Partition Assistant - Migrate OS to SSD Wizard

Warning on this software:

This is a Windows 8 machine,

I used it to resize the OS partition of the HD to make it a size smaller than the SSD.  The original partition was over 1 TB yet only 44 GB was being used.  I used the software to resize it to 75GB which should have been well under the size of my SSD.

Once I applied the changes in the software it shut down and then ran the rezing process.  Then my dell WOULD NOt boot up.  It was just in a continous loop trying to reboot.  So all this did was leave me with a $1000 boat anchor.  Right now I am trying to restore off the recovery disks I made earlier but the first time around I got an error code.  I am about to be really mad if all I've done is broken the new computer trying to do this very "simple" process.
