    Cloned drive won’t boot up


    I am very new at this. I have a HP ProBook 4540. A diagnostic test said the hard drive was failing. I cloned the old hard drive to an identical new one using EaseUS. Everything seemed fine. I then installed the new drive into the laptop and this message comes up:
    BootDevice not found.
    Please install an operating system on your hard disk
    Hard Disk - (3F0)

    The laptop was originally Windows 7 (I think) and I updated it to Windows 10 so I don’t have any Windows 10 disks. How do I fix this? Thank you in advance.

    :)

  2. cloneing a drive in windows 10

    Hi,I have this question last year,but my os is windows 8.there are my steps of

    How to clone drive in winodws


    ,you can check.hope that helps

    First,I download a free tool of MiniTool partition wizard and launch it.

    Step 1. Connect SSD to Windows 8. Install and launch MiniTool Partition Wizard Free Edition, select the source hard drive and then choose “Copy

    Step 2. Select a disk to copy the source disk. Here you are expected to choose the SSD (we choose disk 3).

    Note: All the data on SSD will be destroyed, so make sure you have done backup in advance. You are allowed to clone a hard drive to a smaller SSD, as long as it can hold all data in the source disk. You can also clone SSD to larger SSD by using MiniTool
    Partition Wizard Free Edition.


    Step 3. Review the changes you are going to make and also change the copy options if necessary.

    Step 4. MiniTool Partition Wizard will tell you how to boot from the destination hard drive. So if you are cloning boot drive to SSD, you need to pay attention.

    Step 5. When you are lead to the main interface again, you can preview the changes you are going to make from the middle pane. (Here disk 3 has the same disk layout with disk 1.) If you confirm these
    changes, you should click “Apply” to make the changes effective. Hope that helps

    when I try and boot up through cloned drive I get an error message saying that there is nothing to boot up to. !!

    Hi, I am using a 64Gb SSD as my main drive in my Radio PC (am a Radio Ham). So I purchased an identical drive to make things nice and straightforward (I thought) I then used the todo software 9.1 to Clone the drive. No problem with that, and ended up with
    identical drives.

    However when I try and boot up the the new cloned drive (original disconnected) I get an error message saying that there is nothing to boot up to. !!

    It cannot access the drive, so what am I missing I thought that by cloning a dirve it would be identical, boot sector and all.

    The plan is to clone the drive every so often to keep it up to date, I have done this with my main system PC, and that works fine so what am I missing here. If you look at the drive using file manager it looks identical so all the data is there.

    Regards Cliff
