Boot drive issues

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Yesterday I used EaseUS to create a copy of my windows installation from my 2tb sshd to my 1tb ssd. After my copy was made, I followed instructions and disconnected my sshd, then went into my

bios and set my ssd as my boot drive. For some reason, this shows up everytime I start up my computer though: 

 

Anybody know if I’ve done anything wrong/forgotten to do something?

Looks like something went wrong with the copy, I have never tried copying an OS before but you system can't seem to find windows on your drive. If you are able to I would just go for the clean install on your ssd

If I chose to reset the pc, would it give me a choice as to which drive windows would reinstall onto?

As far as I am aware no, it should only let you install on the current drive

Looking at my drives, it seems to me as if windows IS indeed installed on my new ssd (the windows symbol near local disk (C:) as well as it being filled up when it was empty prior to the clone. Would I have to delete all of the files off of my previous sshd for it to boot properly? Perhaps that's whats causing the issue
