Want to Clone from one iMac (with Windows partition) to another in Target Disk Mode – MacRumors

Hi, I’d like to clone on old intel iMac to a newer (albeit 2015) iMac. The old iMac has both MacOS and a Windows partition. My thought is to connect the newer / recipient iMac to the older one with the newer connected in Target Disk mode. Then use some kind of disk cloning software to clone the entire hard drive as is, block by block, to the newer Mac, ideally leaving the newer mac ready to boot in either MacOS or Windows as the older one currently is.

Wondering if there’s a single piece of cloning software which can do this in a straightforward easy way? If so, what is it and, do I need to pre-format the recipient Mac’s drive in any particular way before proceeding.

Thanks so much,
