    Macrium Reflect clone bootable & Paragon Adaptive Restore


    System is on W10 Pro ver 1903. Using Macrium Reflect free ver 7.2 and used clone. But it checks for 2 partitions, the System Reserved and the NTFS C: , not for an entire disk. Then found the clone ( from 500 GB HDD to 500 GB HDD) won't boot, probably due to the same issue found in today's How to make cloned drive bootable?.

    First, is there an option in the free version to clone a whole drive and therefore get the boot sector? Second, I presume I could run the command(s) using a HUBD, etc. But need to be in an elevated command prompt. Or I could use another routine to accomplish the same, found on an UBD.

    And dictum's command: bcdboot C:\Windows /s G: is all it takes?

    This is for a ~10 year old system so I presume it's not EFI. Don't want to introduce EasyBCD as the main thing I hope to accomplish is using Paragon Adaptive Restore to move my OS to a new Ryzen system (same HDD for now).

    Not sure if using this will fly going from an older Bios based to an EFI. Would appreciate any real world experience since if it can't be done I'll simply buy another license. But I like to see if things work so ....


    Thanks in advance for any feedback,

    :)

  2. How to make a clone disk bootable?

    My hard drive didn’t want to boot so I used Macrium Reflect 7 Free and made a clone of the hard drive to a USB external drive. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to boot my device from this cloned, external drive. I decided to install Macrium Reflect
    7 Free on the SSD to use it as a clone of the external hard drive. Now I have a bootable SSD and a non-bootable clone of the drive and I need to restore everything that
    I had on the drive before the crash. Please, how can I restore the system?

    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.

    Make clone disk bootable?

    My Dell laptop running Windows 10 on 1 TB hard drive wouldn't boot. Fortunately I was using Macrium Reflect 7 Free to make a clone of that hard drive to a USB external 1 TB drive. I wasn't able to get the laptop to boot from the cloned, external drive,
    so I installed a 500 GB SSD in the laptop and did a fresh install of Windows 10 using the Dell recovery disk (thumb drive). I then installed Macrium Reflect 7 Free on the SSD and used it to clone the external hard drive to the laptop's 1 TB hard drive. I
    rebooted, pressing F12, to select the 1 TB drive to boot, but when I did that it wouldn't boot and Windows attempted (unsuccessfully) to repair it.

    Still with me? Macrium Reflect clone bootable & Paragon Adaptive Restore ;)

    So I have a bootable 500 GB SSD running Windows 10 and a non-bootable clone 1 TB drive that should have everything restored that was on the drive before the crash. How do I get this back up and running? (Without manually re-installing every app and copying
    every bit of data that is...)
