    My plan now is to use a USB/SATA connection to clone to a larger SSD and then swap it for the smaller one now in the machine. I'm using Macrium Reflect. What do I need to do to the larger drive so that I'm able to use all of it after cloning?

    You can add a new partition or extend existing ones.

    Or, as you were advised over at the Macrium Help Forum, you can resize the Windows partition on the fly when setting up the clone operation to fill up the target drive. You don't really need to do anything if the target drive is empty.

    I cloned my small drive to a new one and installed it. The machine rexognizes it in the boot directory, but it will not boot. I get an error message that as file is missing or corrupt. The file is \WINDOWS\System32\winload.efi. The error code is 0xc000000e.

    I have downloaded an installation disk and tried to repair windows. I can fix the mbr, but when I try /fixboot, I get access denied.

    How do I fix this? If I reinstall Win 10, will I lose everything else on the drive?

    Do you have Macrium Rescue media you can boot from and try its "Fix boot problems"?

    The rescue medium is on the same thumb drive as the windows installation files. When I try to boot from it, it goes straight to the windows install screen.

    I was away from my machine, but I think downloading the Win 10 media wiped out the rescue media.

    If it were me, I'd recreate the Macrium Reflect rescue flash drive and use it's fix booting options. Also, at this point it would be a good idea to make a complete disk image of ALL partitions of the small disk just to be safe. If the fix boot options in Macrium don't work, try restoring all partitions of the image (NOT clone) to the large disk and see if that boots.

    Yes, but you'll need to install Macrium (Free version fine) on that PC to create the rescue flash. How similar are the two computers? You will probably have good functionality booting the one computer from rescue made on another but just thought I'd ask in case there's a hitch.

    Safest to use the option for both MBR and UEFI bootable. See step 5 here: https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/di...g+rescue+media

    If there is any hitch, it won't be due to any difference between Home and Pro.
