Hi,

I have a 0.5TB rotating rust disk currently having Windows 10 (GPT and EFI) which I want to migrate to a 1TB SSD disk.

My idea is to do a 'dd' of it. But then, once I make that boot, I want to enlarge the partition table and adds partitions for Linux and thus have double boot system.

What is the procedure for that "enlarging" of a GPT disk? Does GPT hold structures at the end of the layout that have to be moved?

Of course, I'm also googling "enlarging GPT disk, linux" and found hits, but seem to be about enlarging a partition, not the disk.

Should perhaps I use clonezilla instead of dd? Will it handle that case automatically?

- -- Cheers
