    Well, the problem is that Macrium Reflect screenshot and the diskpart list are showing two different things. Macrium Reflect is showing the Windows clone on the SSD to be drive letter I: and is a healthy NTFS partition. Also on your SSD where the EFI system partition should be is empty, unallocated space, which is easy to fix.

    But your diskpart volume list shows the cloned Windows partition to be Volume 17, drive letter N: and RAW format (corrupted). So that discrepancy needs to be worked out first.
    Can you help provide the instruction what to do next to fix the issues? appreciate it a lot!

    Well, I guess the first thing to do is determine exactly where the RAW partitions are - on the SSD or on the HDD. You will want to run list vol again in diskpart. Then Select disk 0, detail disk, select disk 1, detail disk, select disk 2, detail disk. That should tell you which volumes are on which disk, and then see where the RAW partitions are. RAW is usually a problem with the filesystem on the partition, so you might be OK to just re-clone the volumes that are listed as RAW.

    Hi, I followed your instructions to rebuild the missing volume which by clone the EFI partition to the unallocated space. Also please see attached 3 disk volume details. The disk 0 is only a gaming SSD. the original HDD is on disk 1, and the new SSD is disk 2.

    So, now it looks like you have an EFI system partition on the SSD, as well as the clone of the Windows 10 partition which is readding NTFS and healthy. Given the same configuration indicated above, the commands would be:

    Code:
    diskpart
    select disk 2
    select part 2
    assign letter=a
    exit
    bcdboot I:\Windows /s A: /f UEFI
    mountvol A: /d
    exit
    Make sure your BIOS is then set to boot from the SSD. Good luck!

    NOTE: disk numbers start with 1 in Macrium Reflect, but they start with 0 in diskpart and Windows disk management.

    Hi, I followed entering the commands, and got this message as no volume found. Is it because letter A was used last time?

    Try using select vol 27 instead of select part 2.

    Thank you so much, now it can be booted into the SSD, but has to selected it from the F12. I went to the bios setting, but the booting menu only has "Windows Boot manager", "NIC V4", "NIC V6", there is no choice of SSD windows. I can only select the SSD XPG 8200 driver under F12 booting screen. Do you know I can make this the default window booting?

    My bios requires me to specify the exact file to be booted from. It's pretty darn complicated but I have to select the disk to boot from, which is listed in the BIOS as FS0, FS1, FS2, etc. Then I have to specify the file:
    \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BOOTMGFW.EFI

    You mean I will have to choose every time boot up by F12 and select the SDD windows? can I just remove the HDD C: to allow the window boot automatically from SDD drive.

    Try disconnecting one of the cables from the HDD and booting the computer.
