I tried to clone my SSD using Intel's software, but it says that it does not work with GPT drives. Why not, GPT drives are the latest technology. I am using Windows 8 and there is no mention of Windows 8 on their tech support website. I am surprised that a company like Intel is not up with the latest technology. How do I clone my SSD from a GPT drive?
I just had this same issue trying to clone the HD in my new ASUS Q200e. This was my first encounter with a EFI Bios and GPT partitioning. I ended up using a freeware program called HDcloning which has full support for GPT partioning.
Note: I kept the GPT partition sizes the same instead of resizing on the new SSD drive.
I tried about 5 different cloning programs but none had the GPT support. I was getting very fustrated
until researching the EFI/GPT issue.

If your hdd is either a Seagate or Western Digital, you can download the latest version of their migration softwrae which supports gpt and uefi. If not there are generic ones available with the required support.
