Windows 10: SSD install on Lenovo Flex 3-1570
You have to format the entire disk as NTFS first. You only have 128MB (not GB) unformatted space there. The rest of the storage space is unallocated.
And why restore? You should have a running OS on the SSD first before you can do a restore if you are trying to fix an issue. If you are planning to migrate to SSD, you should use OS Migration Tool or Cloning tool (which is also one feature of the Macrium).
How are you connecting the target drive? USB enclosure? You might want to have a look at this article: http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/dis...ted?src=search
The implication might be that, if you're using a USB enclosure, you might have better luck with a simple USB/SATA adapter cable.
P.S. not ignoring you @badrobot, I was interrupted while composing and didn't see your response until I pulled the trigger.
Target drive is connected via USB/SATA adapter cable, not enclosure.
@badrobot the whole point of restoring an image to the disk is that I can't install the OS to the SSD while installed in the laptop. Also, how does formatting the entire disk fix a sector size mismatch error?
Your disk should for formatted first so that the process will see it. Delete the small partition that you have there and format the entire disk as GPT in NTFS format.
It's not possible to delete the 128MB partition, see Disk Manager, and when viewed in Macrium
After formatting the entire disk to NTFS I still get the sector size mismatch error. see http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/dis...+Disk+Selected
You probably need to download a 3rd party partition tool like MiniTool Partition Wizard to change 4096 to 512. I don't know how to do that in Windows alone unless someone can help you with it.
It seems like it's a Trim issue. Does your SSD support Trim feature?
I want to change my HDD to a SSD. My Y510P is on Windows 10 and has a small 24gb SSD already.
If I want to clone my HDD to my brand new Samsung Evo 850 500gb SSD it's not working, because there are Windows files in my small 24gb SSD.
Hi All, I seem to be suffering the same problems as many others. I was using a second screen via a displaylink adaptor on my Flex 15 laptop up until installing Windows10.

I upgraded on Thursday and it took over 5hours. during the process (of course) the Lenovo programs went. Not a great problem but I could not get the win 10 apps, edge, store and window pane search to work. Went down the reinstall route which worked...
