    Cloning dual boot disk , don't work.


    Hi all, I bought an SSD drive for my old laptop, and I'm trying to clone the existing drive but I'm not succeeding.

    I took a caddy and put the HDD in place of the DVD. On the HDD there are two dual boot operating systems Windows 11 and Windows 10 Pro. The HDD boot fine.

    I tried to clone to the new SSD with macrium reflect 8 free, both by mounting the SSD via USB and directly connected to the sata channel. Windows 11 starts but windows 10 remains black screen.

    You may have to use Perform a Forensic Sector Copy.
    Personally I have never been in this situation...

    I've done a few clones but used an Eaxer dual-drive dock, can't be connected to any computer and does a byte for byte copy. Worked for cloning to same size drive or larger size drive. Haven't had occasion to work with a dual-boot yet but since it's byte for byte should work. Using a larger drive left unallocated space but that can be partitioned and formatted.
