    I tried MiniTool. It copied all partions, but none was marked as Boot.

    Do the Macrium cloning again, cloning ALL partitions/drives over to the target. You are cloning a DISK, not a drive. If that won't boot, then you should already have created a Macrium rescue USB/DVD that you boot from and use the feature to fix boot problems.

    Should I delete all partitions from the target drive first?

    Yes. This can be accomplished from within Macrium using "X Delete Existing partition" (see step 4 in the instructions at the first of 3 links above).

    Ok, running cloning now. After it's done if I go Disk Management should I see Boot flag on one of partitions on the new disk?

    Are you looking to dual boot? Looks like you have a faithful clone of Disk 0 onto Disk 3. If you physically remove Disk 0 and connect Disk 3 to the connector that had Disk 0, it should boot.

    If you're wanting to dual boot, then you need action outside the scope of Macrium to accomplish that.

    What say you?

    I dont need dual boot. All I want is to boot from the new drive and have as C: in order to continue using all apps.
    I didn't swap the drives as you are suggesting but I went to Bios to change the Boot to the new drive. The drive wasn't identified as a bootable drive.

    Hi,
    If you have 2 of the same install on 2 different disks you are dual booting :)

    I will reformat my current drive as soon as I get the new one working.
