    Cant boot from my cloned ssd


    I was having trouble booting from my SSD after cloning my HDD. Everything went fine until I tried to go into bios and have it boot from the SSD. While in the bios the SSD didn't show up until I turn on legacy support. I changed the boot order so it would boot from the SSD and then I tried to boot and then the screen turns black with an error that says "no boot disk has been detected or the disk has failed". After this didnt work I turned legacy supprt off and turned on secure boot. When I was done I unplugged the HDD so only the SSD was connected and I turned on the pc. Then the screen said I needed to install a operating system even though windows had already been installed into the SSD cause of the cloning. At first I had the disk as a GPT disk so then I changed it to a MBR disk and re tried everything with no success. Im so lost and couldn't fix it. Sorry if I sound dumb I recently got into computers

    The motherboard is a HP Lubin
    SSD: Samsung EVO 860
    I am using AOEMI Backupper to clone

    Welcome to the forum. Can you post a screenshot from disk management showing both disks so we can see. For see you need uefi gpt disk for best performance you may need to do a clean install if your old disk is MBR

    You didn't clone the entire HDD to the SSD. You only cloned the C: drive partition and not the System Partition that the computer actually boots from. You need a FAT32 system partition to boot from.

    Reclone the disk NOT paritions you need ideally all paritions it should let you resizeng. Samsung has its own free clone tool may be worth using that

    And you just can`t change from GPT to MBR in the Bios. Leave the Bios alone.

    Put it back the way it was.

    Look for a setting that says "Legacy & UEFI, set it to that and don`t change it.

    The original HDD was GPT, so the computer was booting in UEFI mode anyway.

    Right, but he said he changed it to MBR at some point.

    Nearly his last sentence in his 1st paragraph.
