    Sounds like you need an image program to backup your system rather than relying on a double installation which may not have the settings / user name / passwords saved.
    Copying one partition to another won't work because Windows need to know the partition details when it boots.

    It's quick and concise and the way to go. In my opinion.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
