    I have a new 2013 Imac max specs (except memory) and I have the Seagate Goflex (STAE128) connected with a Samsung 840 Pro SSD. I have loaded Windows 8 using Boot Camp and it worked fine on original internal HD.

    I then used Winclone to copy it to the SSD. It copied fine but when I load the SSD it freezes on Preparing to Repair screen everytime in Win8. I have found step by step instructions on this forum and followed them but I cant seem to make the drive load. Can someone please help me? I know there are several who have done this on this forum.

    I had similar problems and gave up in the end and just use Fusion now for anything windows. I'm sure there is an answer but I didn't want to invest the time.

    Thanks for the info. I have decided that I was going to put Win 8 on my regular 1TB internal and now that windows sees my SSD, I am going to install all programs/games to it to get the speed.

    I hope this works. Going to find out tonight via Starcraft :)
