WinClone can not be installed in Windows, it's OS X only. And, it must be installed before it can create an image. Even if you installed it on your new MBP, how would you create an image of your Win 7 machine?

I doubt Macrium Reflect would work. Reflect copies or clones the entire contents of the Windows partition including boot sector information. You would not be able to restore that image to your MBP (assuming you created a Windows partition and installed Windows using Boot Camp) because the hardware and most importantly, boot sector is different.

(Mac machines do not use a BIOS to handle booting, they use EFI.)

Also, a bit of info regarding your copy of Win 7. If it's a pre-installed copy by an OEM (Dell, Sony, HP, etc) it can not be moved to another computer. That would violate the MS EULA. However, if it's a MS boxed copy that you bought and installed, then yes, it can be moved and reactivated on your new MBP.

Regards.
