I’m trying to migrate my Notebook HDD (Asus q550lf-bbi7t07 with Windows 8.1 OEM) to my new SSD drive (SSD Intel 530 Series 240Gb).

I tried to clone the original drive to SSD drive with many tools:

List item
Intel® Data Migration Software
EaseUS
Acronis
Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 4.0 (I bought the full license)
MiniTool Partition Wizard
GParted
Asus Backtracker (installation failure)
In all cases Windows worked properly for 2 or 3 minutes and then its throws me a “blue screen of death” and redirect me to the BIOS (The BIOS does not recognize the drive until I turn off and turn back the PC, then everything repeats...)

I tried to install a clean Windows 8, but I can't because when I have to select the Partition to be installed, its throws me an error (code 0x80070002)

I updated the firmware of the Mather and the SSD drive with the same results.

I think it may be an error related to UEFI.

Any of you went through the same situation as me? What should I do?
 
sounds like the windows installer is looking for a windows directory and did not find it.
md c:\windows and re run the installer.

Any chance you got a crash dump written to your drive? If so you can post it on skydrive or google docs with public access and I will take a quick look even the BSOD bugchek code would be useful.

Note: make sure you use cloning software that is designed for SSD drives. Generally, it is a bad idea to clone onto a SSD. (just a fair warning)

Anyway, I would clone the drive, remove the old drive and attempt to boot
if it fails you would want to boot onto a repair image on USB or DVD and do a auto repair or
use the bootrec.exe commands
bootrec.exe /fixmbr (writes a new master boot record on your drive)
(assume that the partition is marked bootable and marked as active, use diskpart.exe to display or change)

if you leave the second drive attached
you might use bootrec.exe /RebuildBCD which will scan all your drives and ask you which copy of windows you want to boot with. You could also run msconfig and choose the default OS to start and options. (*** look at msconfig first ***)
- From your description, it is hard to determine which boot loader you are using (the one on the old drive or new drive?, which copy of the OS are you using?
the one on the old drive or new drive? also, when you put the new drive in the old drive will get a different drive number and logical drive assignment, problems

note 2: if you think your BIOS is blocking the boot, try and disable secure boot option in BIOS (UEFI)
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/Fedora/18/html/UEFI_Secure_Boot_Guide/chap-UEFI_Secure_Boot_Guide-What_is_Secure_Boot.html

I i were configuring your system I would do a clean install of the windows, and update the OS to the current build, then update the device drivers from the OEM, then update the chipset drivers from the chipset makers. Then confirm no file corruption via system file checker (sfc.exe /scannow). When it works as expected, I would make a repair image.

Note: windows should detect the key you have in the BIOS so you don't have to get another key.
You can also download the generic version of the OS from microsoft if you already have a valid key.

Hi, I can't copy the dump because I haven't enough time before it's throws the BSOD again... :( The error code is CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED.

I try with many migration programs, including the software that intel provides for that task and Paragon Migrate OS to SSD (recomented in that thread Successful Clone of Windows OS hard drive to SSD)

When I boot the pc just leave connected the SSD and it works fine for 1 or 2 minutoes before crash with BSOD. I have the secure boot disable.


I tried to do a clean install into the SSD but the installation fails with code0x80070002

Thanks in advance
 
can you still boot off of your old hard drive and run windows ok? then connect the SSD as a data drive and grab the crash dump file to be uploaded

I connected my SSD as data drive, but I couldn't find the dmp file :( I had to do something before?
 
you have to have windows save your memory dump, some system have it turned off by default
https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB56023
also, if you have it set and the problem is in the storage system you will not get the memory dump saved to disk.

the error you described could be caused by a corrupt image of a OS file being loaded into memory.
I was just going to look in the debugger and check for image corruption.
You are either having memory prolems (run memtest86.exe to test) or more likely, issues with putting the image on the SSD. Best to install your SSD from a clean image running the windows setup.
your machine will have a key already in BIOS or on a sticker you just need to download a image of the OS
install it. you can get a image from microsoft here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/upgrade-product-key-only
I would install it on a USB thumbdrive or DVD if you machine has a DVD drive.

Right now, I believe that the best solution is a clean installation too, but when I try to install Windows I get an error. If the drive was empty (without partitions) the installation didn't recognized the drive. If I create some partition before the installation, I couldn't delete, modify or select that partition, in this case the installator throws the error code 0x80070002
 
sounds like the windows installer is looking for a windows directory and did not find it.
md c:\windows and re run the installer.
