    Disk Clone results in BSOD


    Disk Clone MBR Disk fails.

    Ventoy MBR USB > Aomei Partition Assistant Pro 9.15 WinPE ISO
    Legacy BIOS
    HP i5 x64 Desktop 2013
    Source HDD 500GB 2013
    Target SSD 2.5" 1TB Sandisk 2023
    USB 2.0 ports

    Booted Ventoy in Legacy BIOS mode, launched Aomei Partition Assistant WinPE ISO successfully. Confirmed target disk MBR, not GPT partition table. Source internal SATA, target external USB 3 to SATA adapter. Clone aligned for SSD, Intelligent-Sector, not exact-sector; clone successful. Shutdown, remove stick. Removed HDD, installed SSD internal SATA.

    Boot Legacy BIOS SSD
    BSOD
    The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.
    File: \Boot BCD
    Error code: Oxc000000f

    Troubleshooting:
    Aomei Partition Assistant > rebuild MBR
    LazeSoft > oneclick fix > rebuilt MBR, rebuilt BCD, fixboot, etc.
    Windows 10 > Startup Repair
    Diskpart > bootrec /fixboot > bootrec /fixmbr > bootrec /rebuildBCD
    Diskpart > lis dis > sel dis 0 > lis par > sel par system-NTFS-partition# > active

    What caused this error, and how do I fix it?

    AOMEI has a bug they deny.
    I went through a similar issue like you.
    The issue is MBR vs GPT.
    Copying a boot drive MBR partition onto a new drive is silently without notification converted by AOMEI automatically to GPT even if the new drive is set as partitioned as MBR!
    AOMEI denies this despite my offer to demonstrate the bug.

    SOLUTION:
    The only way to solve the problem was to use a competing product, Paragon Partition Manager 17 which very swiftly copied the entire (boot) partition onto the newer drive which upon re-installation would boot up right away in the respective equipment!

    The boot critical files need to be on the active partition.

    Bootmgr and a folder called boot that contains the bcd store. The bcd store entry needs to point at the windows partition.

    Boot some kind of win10/11 based winpe , open cmd prompt and type:

    if when booted into winpe the windows partition on the cloned disk shows as D: and the active partition on the cloned disk shows as D:

    Replace D: below with whatever letters your winpe shows.

    then the commands would be :

    bootsect /nt60 D: /mbr

    (then press enter)
    bcdboot D:\windows /s D: /f ALL
    (then press enter)

    On the source disk that was cloned (HDD 500GB 2013):

    1) Post images or share links of disk management:

    How to Post a Screenshot of Disk Management


    2) Run:

    a) https://www.tenforums.com/attachment...p_plus_log.bat

    b) Batch files for use in BSOD debugging

    Post share links into this thread using one drive, drop box, or google drive.



    On the target disk (HDD 500GB 2013) post images of these commands with results:

    Diskpart > bootrec /fixboot > bootrec /fixmbr > bootrec /rebuildBCD

    Diskpart
    lis dis
    lis vol
    sel dis 0
    det dis
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    sel par 3
    det par
    sel par 4
    det par

    and include the commands that SIW2 posted.

    Sadly i have to say that the best clone program I have ever used is Clonezilla, but it looks something brought back from the late 80's. But it is good and it just works every time, i can not deny that.

    FWIW I never ever clone system drives. It just ain't worth the hassle. Clean install every time in my book.

    That error code could be a signature issue if it's not that AOMEI issue talked about. Read all about my dilemma and how I fixed it here.

    Clonezilla is a great piece of software. I have successfully used it to clone my encrypted drives.

    To those that don't know, Clonezilla can be used in a server environment and clone many computers all at once.


    Yeah, I would try to boot Clonezilla with Ventoy. For me, I use UEFI booting with Ventoy. Even though my computer is MBR legacy, I have Ventoy loaded in a UEFI state.

    Ventoy is the best software made the last 10years. I have it on external disk and i also have Ventoy on one internal disk on my test/lab computer...
    Never ever "burn" a USB-stick again.
    It does have a bit of a problem with the latest edition of win10/11-ISOs though.. but they often solves it with an update of Ventoy
    Clonezilla is the best free software and even against most paid software too.. It is only the data-recovery cloning software that is better(DeepSpar/PC-3000) But that is a totally different league, so it is not fair to compare to them. But clonezilla is darn close with some data recovery features under advance settings.
    So even i hate the 80's design i still recommend it as it is great when you learn how all advance features works.
