  1. Cannot boot with usb after installed ssd


    I installed a ssd to my laptop and replaced the hdd by it so I try to reinstall windows by using usb boot, I used the mct to make it. But it is not working, It didnt boot with the usb, instead, it keep rebooting like this. https://streamable.com/ibucshI tried to install back the hdd, but it could not boot by usb either. What should I do?

  2. Cloned SSD Won't boot

    Ok I will do this now. What are the next steps after that to make it my main drive and move everything to it?

    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk

    Cannot boot with usb after installed ssd

    boot up with USB SSD

    Hi Christian

    Will that USB SSD always be connected to your PC?

    If not, then you can set that USB SSD as the primary Boot device in BIOS, and the internal drive as the secondary boot device, that way, when the USB SSD is connected, your PC will boot from that and when it is not connected, your PC will boot form the internal
    drive

    If that USB SSD is going to be always connected, you would need to install GRUB or some other bootloader, to you are given the opportunity to choose a boot drive at startup
