    Macrium Image Won't Boot


    Lenovo Thinkpad E531, legacy BIOS mode, Win 10 Pro.
    Objective: To image entire current 300GB HD to a 500GB HD.

    • Used Diskpart to wipe the 500GB drive first, then formatted it as GPT/NTFS/no drive letter.
    • Imaged the 300GB to the 500GB with Macrium Reflect 7.2.
    • No errors after imaging.
    • Could not boot from the 500GB disk after selecting it from the BIOS boot list. The BIOS screen simply jumps back to the selection list to allow me to choose again, each time. Fortunately I was able to boot again with the 300GB disk.

    (the 500GB imaged disk is offline because it has a signature collision with the 300GB boot disk that's online)
    The partitions on the 500GB disk appear to have been copied correctly from the 300GB disk. The rest of the 500GB is unallocated.

    Would the GPT/NTFS disk with legacy BIOS mode be an issue? Or would Macrium Reflect have overwritten the partition specs during the imaging process anyway? Any troubleshooting assistance regarding the 500GB booting issue will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    :)

    Restoring Windows 10 Image using Macrium Reflect


    In addition to the above. Here's my suggestion in step by step.
    I assume you have Macrium Installed in your current HD and already made a backup copy.
    1. Connect your new HD via USB port and boot up.
    2. Run Macrium, click on Restore tab then select the Backup Image that you made to restore
    3. click on "select a different target disk" then select your new HD as destination

    4. Proceed to restore then Shutdown and disconnect the old HD and replace with the new HD
    5. Boot up with your new HD.

    Macrium is used frequently in this forum. There are experts in using it to recover drives. It's unclear as to why you are struggling to use it. I had not used it and just tried it for the first time and it went smoothly. Maybe these images might help?
