  1. Ssd not booting


    I’ve been experiencing problems with my computer recognizing my ssd to boot from. I had two separate hardrives with Windows downloaded on both connected to my pc. When booted up it prompted me to select a drive. Last night I decided to delete one drive for extra storage. Now my pc doesn’t even recognized my other drive as a boot drive. I suspect it could be something with dual boot? I think I remember hearing that one drive is the “main” that determines were to boot from and the other doesn’t have it but I’m not sure. I tried doing startup repair which didn’t work and bootrec is also giving me errors. It does appear in diskpart so in know it’s there.

  2. Unable to boot Windows after cloning it to SSD

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues while booting the PC after cloning Windows to new SSD. I would like to know what happens when you try to boot the PC to desktop using SSD?



    The reason you are not able to boot the PC is that the files required to boot Windows are still recognizing the HDD as the main drive. I would suggest you to try rebuilding the BCD files and see if you are able to boot the PC using
    SSD.



    Kindly follow the steps below to rebuild the BCD.



    1. Create a bootable media and boot the PC using the media.
    2. On the Install Windows screen, select Next >
      Repair your computer.
    3. On the System Recovery Options screen, select
      Troubleshoot
      > Advanced options > Command Prompt.
    4. Now type in the commands and hit enter: BOOTREC /FIXMBR

      BOOTREC /FIXBOOT


      BOOTREC /scanos

      BOOTREC /rebuildbcd
    5. Restart the PC.


    If the issue persists, please get back to us with the results of the troubleshooting steps to assist you further.

    Windows 10 SSD Boot and Sleep faliure

    Windows cannot stop the BIOS recognising the SSD. If at any time you can go into the BIOS and the SSD is not listed then you have an (intermittent) hardware fault. It does not matter what the precursor steps are if the hardware was OK it must be listed

    Step 6 is categorical, you have a hardware fault. BIOS device recognition is always before drivers load so they cannot affect the process
