    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?
