SSD clone won’t boot

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

G’day boys and girls long time no log in, right so I’ve attempted to clone my hdd onto an ssd today using easeUS todo because I’m cheap and after damn near five hours of cloning everything was looking mint, all files where there to view and ready to roll so I thought unfortunately when I went to reboot with the old hdd disconnect it fails to recognise the clone, now I’m ready to set the computer on fire so help would be much appreciated.

You could have reinstall windows and setup everything with 5 hours.

How do the partitions look? Is the 100MB or 500MB or whatever size partition set to active and boot? Also what Windows are you using? I have cloned Windows form HDD to SSD and back to HDD and it still works.

Hello GhostWindGamer,


Unplug the original drive and try to boot from the clone, just make sure you select as the first boot device under boot priority in BIOS.
