Gigabyte Sabre Upgrading - M.2 imaging tools?

30 November 2017 - 05:43 PM

Brainstrust, I'm upgrading the M2 and HDD in a new Sbare 17-k for a friend and need some advice on cloning the M2 drive. It's the boot drive and has the recovery partition etc. I have no way of connecting both M2 drives simultaneously.

Is/are there any reliable tools for imaging drives, preferably free? I think I'm going to need to create an image, swap in the new unit and restore the image from an alternative boot source. Vaguely recall doing this with linux tool cds, but it has been a long time and I guess the install will be from a linux USB?

 

Help me, atomic-wan!
