Cloned SSD wont Boot

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I got a new SSD and got lazy by not wanting to reinstall windows on it, I decided to clone my old HDD onto the new SSD using Macrium Reflect. Cloning was succesful, BIOS shows the new SSD, Windows shows the SSD, but it wont let me boot from it.

If i put the SSD as boot priority it will still boot from the HDD, If I unplug/disconnect the HDD and try to boot from the SSD it stays looking for intel boot file (or something like that)

I booted from the old HDD and ran Crystal Benchamark, on both drives, both are healthy SSD is much faster (nothing new)

Thoughts?
was the cloning bad?
Should I try to Clone again (first time cloning)?

PC Specs:

Intel C2D E6600
Intel D946GZIS
2GB RAM
GT620

You need BCDEdit ot better, EasyBCD.

EasyBCD is a lot easier. You do have to register, but no spam.

I have used Acronis True Image and had no problems.

I cloned the disk again using the same software (Macrium) and it worked right off the bat

Thanks everyone
