    Issues installing Windows onto new hard drive from recovery USB


    I've recently bought a new hard drive because my old one was at risk of failure, and I'm having issues installing Windows 10 on it.


    When booting up with the recently created recovery USB connected, I press f12 repeatedly, then choose my keyboard layout, and then choose to "Recover from a drive". I then choose "Fully clean the drive", and it begins to recover the PC, with a percentage of completion. It gets to 93% complete after a few hours, at which point I get the message "There was a problem resetting your pc. No changes were made".


    I've tried doing this twice, to no avail. I also initially chose the option to "Just remove my files" rather than "Fully clean the drive", which got to around 10% before I got the same error message.


    Has anyone had a similar issue, and knows how to fix it? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    Installing Drivers in Recovery M4 SSD

    I can't seem to figure out how to install drivers so that can copy my system image to new laptop hard drive. I went as far as to install a new inactivated windows 7 onto the hard drive so I know it works, but when I point recovery at C:\Windows\system32\drivers\disk.sys, I got an error something along the lines of "not relevant to system hardware" (or something like that I forget the exact wording).

    I can list the drive in diskpart, and I made sure it is not excluded for copying the image, but after 3 days of fiddling, I still can't get it to work. Where is the driver that I need for recovery to be able to install an image to the new hard drive? I checked crucial website, but they don't seem to list drivers for M4. I assume that since I was able to install a fresh inactivated Windows 7 from a startup disk that the driver I need would be somewhere in that system so maybe I'm just pointing recovery at the wrong file?
