    Disk cloning and signature collision.


    I cloned my HDD to a samsung SSD using samsung magician.
    I then interchanged the SATA connectors of the two disks.
    System booted from the SSD with no problems.
    The HDD was not shown in file explorer and checking with Disk Manager I saw that it was offline because of signature collision.
    Using diskpart I changed the HDD ID. The picture below shows the IDs. Disk 0 is the SSD and Disk 1 the HDD.
    But still geting a collision. I still haven't right ckicked the offline icon in disk management to online .
    What am I missing here? Disks with different IDs shouldn't collide.

    Did you restart the computer by clicking on Restart from the power menu?

    This is one reason I use imaging rather than cloning when switching the OS between disks

    If in Disk Manager I right click the offline disk and select online (in theory it should do the job) any ideas of what problems I might expect?
