    Do I need to reinstall my applications after adding a boot disk


    Sorry for the newb question.

    Facing an imminent HD failure, I added a SSD for my boot drive and cloned my failing HD to a new disk. All went well, Boots great and I can see everything on the cloned HD.


    Is there a utility that can rebuild application links? Or do I need to reinstall my apps?

    :)

    Booting GRLDR

    during install did it ever give the option as to which boot loader youd like to use? because sounds like your boot loader is F@#$%d you can pop in the disk and try reinstalling the boot loader or you can reinstall the OS and i suggest using GRUB

    Do I need to reinstall my applications after adding a boot disk

    Can't safely remove external disk

    In reference to the steps of your suggestions:

    • The issue is specific to the particular disk and it started after I've used the disk to save the System image backup (created with the Control Panel > File History tool).
    • I didn't disable any windows Service. I'm just wondering if there is any to disable.
    • Safe boot with networking, or clean boot doesn't resolve the issue.

    Thank you.
