mounting works, i did it for my laptop, it copies the files to the HDD, gets to 20 something % then reboots.
However, the files I want to keep are like 240GB worth and its taking too long.
Is the upgrade bad? is it lesser than a clean install? will my computer be slow?
Ill probably end up with almost everything installed again anyway.
Ive cancelled the copy and will just go for a upgrade I think.
I can burn a disc and do a clean install at a later date when I get another HDD to copy my stuff on to.

I think something has went very wrong.
I canceled my copy and tried to merge the partition back to C with easeus partition manager.
It worked fine, pc rebooted and now it wont boot.
Its stuck at the very first screen, detecting CD, fine, detecting SATAII bla bla, hitatchi detetcted and its just stuck there.
Doesnt tell me to insert correct boot media or anything, just stays at that first screen

yeah its my 1TB HDD.
What is Hitachi ?
If it is USB or removable try removing it and booting again
If it is your HDD.... it sounds like partitioning went wrong, I only use Windows own disk management for partitioning, not 3rd parties for primary drives
Best thing to do then would be remove the HDD and install it in another machine / USB caddy and copy your data then reinstall once you get a USB drive

yeah its my 1TB HDD.
Tried unpluggin/replugging it, reset BIOS just incase but nothing.
I have no access to another machine, I think my only option is to get my dads laptop tomorrow, download win8, burn to DVD then just format the HDD.
The stuff I wanted to keep was mainly software and video files. Theres nothing majorly important.
Will do that tomorrow and just format it.
I can install from a USB right?
Also, will the upgrade still work now that my partitions are fooked
