    Where is the Samsung 500GB SSD (850QVO) you bought to replace the Hitachi 750GB HDD?
    From the Diskparinfo.log the Samsung SSD 870 QVO is 1TB, not 500Gb. Is it correct?

    From the Diskparinfo.log, reagentc /info say that Recovery is disable. There is no recovery partition

    Your Samsung drive is a big mess. I would like to see the Disk manager of the Hitachi 750GB HDD

    Do you have another drive image and clone like Macrium Reflect or Aomei?

    I cloned the whole disk, but the recovery partition seems to match in size 969mb but appears messed up and not classified as recovery partition
    I am going to attempt another one now with AOMEI backupper soon

    take a look at the cloned 969mb with diskgenius and see what is in there.

    you can set it to the recovery partition id with diskgenius as well if you like.

    Why is the Hitachi partitions on the correct order and not on the Samsung?
    - EFI- FAT32 - 100M
    - MSR- RAW - 16M
    - C: - NRFS - Many G
    - Recovery - NTFS ~850M

    I recommend that you clone it again using AOMEI backupper.
    Before you clone, disable the recovery partition on the Hitachi:
    Boot from the Hitachi and open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    reagentc /disable

    It has to end with the same partitions order and size, only exception is C: that should be ~250G bigger.

    Thanks for the advice
    Before i read this I moved out all files and used AOMEI backupper to clone it
    I also downloaded DiskGenius prior to this suggested by SIW2 but could not find the setting to change the typeto the recovery partition idCloning (HDD to SDD) with Windows 10 Recovery Partition functional-diskgenius.jpg
    Now though the image shows the partition in the right order as the previous one and the disk has booted up, and I am able to reset it to install windows again (to see if I can do it later), it does not identify it as a recovery partition strangelyCloning (HDD to SDD) with Windows 10 Recovery Partition functional-diskm3.jpgCloning (HDD to SDD) with Windows 10 Recovery Partition functional-diskm2.jpg

    things seem to be workig though, I am in the process of re-instaling windows (reset the pc) with the new SSD
    Thanks for all your help on this forum

    It isn't finished yet.
    - Detach the Hitachi drive (SATA or power cable)
    - Boot from the Samsung
    - Open disk manager, Right click on the E: partition and select Extend (to add the 1.26G to E:)
    - Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    reagentc /enable (to create the recovery partition)

    Now you can do the Repair install or Reset

    select the partition type in the drop down

    however if it is working after doing the clone with Aomei, you don't need to do that.

    i read this abit late. I managed to install and reset the windows as it is from the files at the recovery partition , the recovery partition still shows no descripition on it though.

    I also ran similar to what you indicated but as reagentc /info .and it gives this below confiirmation that it confirms the recovery partition

    aomei made a good job of the clone.

    Did you disk clone or system clone with aomei ?
