    SEL - making new drive bootable

    Sorry for such a n00b question... I used my Mac and Paragon EXT4 disk duplicator to make a clone of my HS3 drive to a larger 128GB SSD. Copy went fine & was able to resize the partition to use the extra space. Problem is the master boot record doesn't appear to have been copied.

    Anyone know of any Mac software that can handle that? If not, I can boot into Windows so Windows software recommendations are also welcome.

    Thanks!

    Works on embedded systems too (I used it on a MINIX N42C-4)

      I ended up not wanting to pay for the Paragon software for something I do so rarely now. I made a bootable flash drive with Clonezilla. It worked like a champ and freeware, in case anyone else is looking to do this.

        I use this to backup/restore images of PI SD and thumb drives.
