Windows 10: Booting from a Cloned Partition

    Booting from a Cloned Partition


    I have cloned a partition using AOEMI Backupper and I have tried to find out how to make the cloned partition bootable. No luck with that. Note that this PC has one Hard Drive and which is UEFI/GPT based. Is it possible to make the cloned partition (G) bootable. The identifier for the cloned partition shows 'default'!

    If G is clone of C partition do this from admin command prompt.

    bcdboot G:\windows

    I am sure that I have tried this but I will give it another try.

    Booting from a Cloned Partition


    Tried that and when attempting to boot from the cloned partition I get an occasional busy symbol. If you leave it for a while, on returning there is lots of disk activity and the busy symbol is flashing away. Earlier today I left it like this for well over an hour without booting.

    Another option is to create a Macrium Reflect Rescue drive, boot from it and select 'fix windows boot problems'.

    OK Sumuria, I will take a look on YouTube.

    Cerebus, I have Macrium Reflect and have already built a Rescue Disk. I have been unable to resolve my Boot problem with the rescue disk.

    Thanks to you both.
