    cloning Windows 10


    I got new SSD and want to move my Insider OS to the new drive. I used Macrium Reflect to clone my C drive. The files are there by the new drive is not bootable. How can I fix that?

    Thanks

    Did you clone the whole drive with all partitions if you just cloned c it won't boot without the other partitions

    I am not sure. But I think with a partition.Click image for larger version.

    Often, a quick fix using any partition or disk manager is all that is needed: the intended hard-drive or the appropriate boot partition needs to be marked Active; it's probably already set to Primary.

    Not sure what you are saying. What are you proposing to so?

    If you're asking me, I'm simply saying, in my experience, the quick fix was to make sure the boot partition (for example, Windows 7's System Reserved) is marked Active. Or if no System Reserved partition exists, the partition containing the OS is marked Active.

    But it is marked as Active, but not Boot.

    Ahhh, ok, I'm in school, have no solution to offer at this time; I will listen in alongside you and let others with more experience and more wisdom than I offer their solutions.

    You need to redline and clone the whole disk so it clones all partitions and boot record just creating partition after it won't have the files or boot record
