Windows 10: Unable to Clone Windows 10 HDD
I did that to determine if there was a problem with the SSD. There was not.
I have 2 PCs, 2 copies of Windows 7. One of the copies of Windows 7 was upgraded to Windows 10. I kept an image copy of that Windows 7. Cloning that one (for test purposes) works. Like I said before, Windows 7 clones and boots perfectly on my Primary PC...Windows 10 clone fails on my Primary PC.
So you booted the ssd on another pc which would change drivers activation etc?
Then I cloned my Windows 10 HDD using the same MiniTool utility. No errors during the clone
so you have two disk with the same signature ?
How much would you lose if you cloned Windows 7 and then upgraded it to Windows 10?
If I did that as a workaround and test, it wouldn't matter, since I would still have my Windows 10 HDD.
I see where you're going here.
I might do that out of curiosity to see if it would boot but it would still be a mystery as to why cloning Win10 doesn't work.
If I did what you suggest, should I disconnect all other Active HDDs while upgrading or doesn't it matter?

It wouldn't matter.
Very good. I will try this as a test for the time being.
As soon as I have completed the CHKDSK for all HDDs marked as "dirty" I will try.
I have a DVD containing a December 2016 ISO of Windows 10. Should I boot from that or boot into the SSD Windows 7 and run the upgrade from the DVD?
To upgrade Windows 7 to 10 you have to run the Windows 10 setup from inside Windows 7. You cannot upgrade by booting from the DVD.
Understood. I'll update the thread when I'm done. Thanks.
Update: The Windows 10 Upgrade from a cloned Windows 7 on SSD worked and booted normally.
Was damn quick too.
Thanks for the suggestion.
Still remains a mystery as to why it wouldn't clone from my windows 10 HDD.
Just got a new Lenovo computer and fitted an SSD. I then cloned it using EaseUS Todo backup free edition. I performed a disc clone when I should have used a system clone. The PC still works but the file system has changed, haven't tried to...

I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask, but considering a lot of people have cloned their Windows installations before an upgrade or a clean install, I thought I'd try!

I recently bought a new Dell Inspiron 7559 laptop, and installed an SSD in the computer's m.2 port. I then cloned the existing HD to the SSD, changed the SSD to the default boot in BIOS, and then re-formatted the HD.
