    making usb ssd or hdd a dynamic disc for use in acronis true image

    callecal

      Hi, I want to install a new ssd instead of the hdd that came with my new laptop, HP envy 15.

      But since my hp recovery dvd wont work on my ssd I put in the laptop I need to create a usb boot hdd with a image of the original C: then switch the old hdd to the new sdd, boot from the usb hdd and recover the copied c: to the ssd.

      But I cannot create a usb boot drive because it is set as "basic" and not a removable media, a "dynamic device" this can be changed in disk manager but does not work for me, I get an error message that  "the operation is not supported by the object"

      Someone told me this could simply be because I am using a laptop and programs such as acronis get confused with usb hdd. Could that be true? sound weird as obviously people have done this before me...

      Please help me, I am all out of ideas!
