    Zbook: You also asked for this to be posted.
    I noticed that drive 0: is showing a drive letter other than C: Would changing drive 1's letter from C to another and then changing drive 0 to C: have any impact on the boot problem?

    Zbook: I have Minitools and opened the partition tools, but I couldn't see how to access the data you want me to capture and post.

    For minitool click launch > post an image
    For disk management make sure the columns are widened as needed (all characters within parenthesis should be seen)
    For command line > copy and paste into administrative command prompt > post into the thread or save to notepad > post a share link using one drive, drop box, or google drive.

    Although I've been using computers (and building some) since Trash 80, CP./M, Osborne and all the DOSes, I'm not sure what you want to have posted. At 85, my mental capacities are obviously waning. But I did open Minitool Partition and captured the same data that is displayed in Disk Manager.

    If you can be more specific and detailed on the steps to provide the data you would like, I'll do my best to get it for you.

    When administrative command prompt is open you can type or copy and paste.

    In post #2 the commands were posted.

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum all
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    reagentc /info
    diskpart
    lis dis
    lis vol
    sel dis 0

    sel par 5

    sel par 6
    det par



    These can be typed, copy and pasted one line at a time, or all lines in one copy and paste.

    It takes seconds with one copy and paste.

    Then click enter.

    Then post the results into the thread.

    For disk management a tutorial with instructions was posted.

    Which part was not understood?

    For Minitool when the software is launched > use the snipping tool to make an image > upload the image into the thread

    Which of the 8 drives was the drive that you decided to clone?
    Which of the drives was the new drive?
    Which drives are in RAID?

    How come the image made with Mini Tool displayed only 3 drives?
    How come Disk management was not posted?

    Hi folks

    the problem is that you have got the initial (not the efi boot partition) boot sector on the HDD -- this then can read and load the efi Windows boot partition from the SSD (or any other boot loader in that partition e.g a Linux Grub loader or whatever).

    What you actually need to do (you can't see that boot sector) is to delete the partition table on the HDD -- a simple clean or whatever doesn't remove that boot sector.

    Save what you need from the HDD and use say GPARTED to delete that partition table --- don't create any partitions on it (yet). If you've got GPARTED running then the SSD should show on the efi partition flags of boot,esp.

    If you look at the screenshot here it shows that I have a Windows boot manager on HD2 and Linux (GRUB2 on HD1)

    Can't boot SSD without HDD connected-screenshot_20200302_141410.png

    Using GPARTED to show the partition flags :

    For Windows (boot from HD2)

    Can't boot SSD without HDD connected-screenshot_20200302_141850.png

    You can see the flags boot, esp with the Ms reserved partition.

    The boot files can be seen from the file info in the command.

    On the Linux (boot from HD1)

    Can't boot SSD without HDD connected-screenshot_20200302_142305.png

    There's just the boot partition with the esp, boot flag --no MS reserved partition.

    To check this on your system download a Linux live distro and ensure efibootmgr is installed - then run the commands as above to see where the real windows boot files are in the efi partition. You *Might* with a bit of hacking etc be able to copy the HDD efi boot file to the SSD -- change the UUID etc -- wouldn't recommend that approach though - you'll probably hose up 2 disks completely !!.

    Now you'll probably have to run the stand alone recovery medias (use FREE Macrium) to repair / fix Windows boot problems --you should get prompted for the SSD as the existing windows installation and it should create a boot record OK.


    If all else fails simply "Offline the HDD" and re-install Windows

    Cheers
