    Transfer of Windows Installation to new PC does not boot


    I want to migrate my Windows 1809 installation with all programs to a new PC. I tried it with backups of the old PC that I restored to the new one, but the new one could never boot it. I tried AOMEI and EaseUS, I made complete system backups of all the neccessary partitions, I restored only the windows partition after I had installed a pure new 1809 on the target PC.
    I then tried to repair it with bootrec commands. This failed to, I always end in error messages like "system cannot find the path".
    The disk layout of both PCs is differrent: The old one has three SATA-SSDs, a small one, now unaccessable in the mini enclosure with passive cooling once was the boot device, a boot SSD and a SSD for data. Somehow I managed to boot automatically from the new bigger SSD after quite a while tinkering with bootrec, before that I had to go into the BIOS boot menu every boot.
    The target PC at the moment has only one SATA-SSD, I delete all partitions on it before I start a new restore.

    :)

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
