  1. New M.2 SSD clone offline and can't bring back online


    Hi,



    Fairly new to tinkering with the insides so apologies if I seem a little vague at times.



    I inserted the WD 240gb in the m.2 slot and formatted it using disk management tool. I formatted it as GUID rather than MBR as I read this would be better possibly where i went wrong?



    I then used Minitool Shadowmaker for the cloning as read that I could clone a 1TB HDD onto the 240gb easily enough.



    The clone was successful however when I rebooted the pc I had both drives still in place, so think I created some sort of conflicted copy on the SSD which was then marked offline and not visible in explorer. I clicked 'online' in Disk Management but get the error 'The parameter is incorrect' in a Virtual Disk Manager pop-up window.



    I have tried removing the HDD and booting solely from the SSD but it doesn't get past the HP recovery blue screen.



    I have tried removing and replacing the SSD and re-cloning it but still the same.

    Tried to use diskpart to clean and start again but wouldn't let me clean an offline volume.



    So that's where I'm stuck and out of ideas, any help greatly appreciated.



    HP15-bs150SA

    Windows 10.0.18362 Build 18362

    HDD is ST1000LM035-1RK172

    SSD is WDS240G2G0B-00EPW0

  2. M.2 cloned from SSD dive, bios problems

    did you cloned only C partition to new m.2 dad ? .

    did you see new m.2 is detected by bios? , if not means get updated bios and flash it .

    or restore the bios default settings .

    after cloned c partition, remove old ssd, then boot the Windows 10 dvd and try to repair startup repair

  3. Unable to Boot to Windows 10 after Cloning old SSD to new SSD

    Hi,

    I'm not using the SATA ports. I'm using M.2 with the SSD, and the external SSD is connected to my PC using USB. My MB only has only one M.2 socket, so I can only plug in one SSD at a time. (I bought a wrong adapter that doesn't work with NVMe) So I cloned
    my old SSD to an external SSD (Samsung M3 Portable SSD), and then swapped the old one, cloned the external SSD to my new SSD.

    I tried AOMEI too, but the free version does not come with disk clone functions. I would probably try Macrium Reflect as suggested above. Thank you!

    Upgrading hdd to M.2 SSD

    I got a new m.2 drive for Christmas and ive been trying to set it up so that my new SSD drive will replace my old hdd. I partitioned and cloned the new drive and it works well with HDD. However when I take the hdd drive out and turn my computer back on
    it brings up support assist and then eventually tells me that there is no drive to boot from. Ive been looking online and I can't find what I did wrong.
