If it does not work, the clone was not successful.Hello,
I've successfully cloned a new NVMe drive (Samsung 980 PRO in a ASUS Maximus X Hero Wi-Fi with up to date BIOS/UEFI) from an old Samsung SSD drive using Macrium Reflect, but the system won't boot. Any ideas on how to fix this?
^^THIS^^If it does not work, the clone was not successful.
Unless you take particular pains to select a Forensic clone, Macrium is not a bit for bit clone either.It is a C drive mover not a for bit clone.
By successful I mean the copy of the partitions, it's all there, the files, etc.If it does not work, the clone was not successful.
If you put the system back to original config, without the new drive, does it boot up?
Please show us a screencap of your Disk Management window.
Why the 980 Pro?
The M.2 port in that board is only PCIe 3.0 x4.
I suppose Macrium Reflect rescue disk/application does all the process, such as creating partitions, volumes, formatting, etc. As for the old drive, it's already out of the computer.^^THIS^^
It could be as simple as selecting the new drive as the boot device in the bios.
However, if you did not format the new drive correctly as NTFS/GPT, then you may need to redo the clone.
One thing that almost always seems to help is, after cloning is completed, remove the old drive before booting up the machine again. That way windows has no choice but to boot from the new drive, as long as the formatting is correct....
-----------------------------I will do the process all over again and take pics of the steps, thanks!
