    Don't believe you can do it the way you want. That ssd was installed on a different laptop, plus a different version of Windows 10. Just can't be done your way. Lots of us have to re-install our programs, paid and the free ones. Maybe someone else can think of a way, I just don't think it can be done the way your trying.

    The version of Windows is not an issue, as I can buy a license if needed. I've used this same install of Windows on this SSD in three different laptops so far, and it worked fine the last two times I put the SSD into a new laptop. They've all been different model laptops, so have had different hardware. I've also done the same with a number of hard drives in different computers with no problems.

    When the HP web site was viewed for HP ProBook 6460b there appeared to be no driver support for windows 10.
    Are you using window 7 or 8.1 drivers or are they from a non HP source (software driver update application?)

    Hi. Have you tried booting to Macrium Rescue Media and using their Fix Boot option? Just a thought.

    I'm running Windows 10 on several laptops, none of which offically have Windows 10 support. On my HP ProBook 4330s, I'm using drivers from Windows Update, as well as HP and non HP drivers installed by driver update software.

    I have added some of the specs. There is a fairly detailed list here.

    Yes, that was another thing I tried, with no success.

    Okay, so the new laptop runs with W10, just not your old SSD?
    Here's a possibility:
    Image (and verify) your old SSD (all partitions) to an external drive and set it aside.
    Put the old SSD in the new laptop, wipe the partitions and clean install W10Pro.
    Once it's up and running, and booting/rebooting fine, shut down and boot to Macrium Recovery; plug in your external drive with the image of the old SSD that has all your programs on it.
    In Restore, select your old SSD image, only the C partition, and restore that partition to the C partition of the clean install you just did. (Drag it onto the C partition to restore.) If they're not exactly the same size and the new partition is smaller, there's an option to restore to a smaller drive.

    If it doesn't work, at least you can reimage the old SSD and get back to where you started.

    Edit: I think I just repeated what OldMike already suggested....

    Can the drive be returned to a working computer environment so that we can view logs on the current drive?
    And can the drive be tested?

    Yes the laptop works fine with Windows 10. The issue is not specific to this new laptop, the SSD would also not work in another laptop I tried it in. Also, this new laptop does not require in special storage drivers to be installed.

    The laptop should have started to boot Winodws, and then when Windows should have recognised the different hardware and automatically installed any needed drivers for the devices that are different to what was in the old laptop. But, it fails to read from the SSD, so it can't get that far.

    I may try the backup/restore in a while. It will take a few hours hours to do, so am hoping I can find some other options first.

    I've done a surface test on the drive with no problems, and it has no SMART errors. I can put the drive back in the original laptop. What logs do you need?
