Hi,
I have successfully installed and dual-booting win10 on a small SSD, and High Sierra on a mechanical HDD.
I am experiencing that my MacOS install has significantly slower performance than my windows installation, and I expect it is because of the hdd its installed on.

My plan is to upgrade to a "Kingston A2000 1TB NVMe M.2 SSD SSD" and I wish to partition it, so that I have windows on 500gb and Mac on the remaining 500gb.

What would be the best way to go ahead and do that? Does MacOS have a clone feature or is there another easy solution?

Should I create my 500gb partitions using windows or MacOS?

I upgraded from a 120gb to a 240gb ssd. I did a dual boot system with win10 and mac os with 120gb each system. I used a program called "EaseUS Todo Backup". It worked well, but I had to do the process 3 times (maybe the instructions were not clear, or it's just i''m a bit.... ). Hope I helped you a bit at least
