i have cloned windows 8 from a small drive to a larger drive, using Easeus i have now got windows 8 on the small drive as C:\ drive, and windows 8 as E:\ drive on the large drive. what do I do now?, can I format the C drive? will the E drive then bootup?

I assume you are using the Disk Copy Home Edition, if so there is a full walk through here.

before formatting anything

remove c

plug e into the sata socket where c was located and check it boots

Image the drive to an external device as backup.
