Boot Problem after SSD Clone on windows 10

Original title: Boot problem on ssd clone

Hello,

I recently buy a new fujitsu w10 laptop with a 256Gb SSD drive, i want to upgrade this ssd with 1Tb. So I clone the original to the new one with ghost  and put the new one in the laptop. The laptop don't start it fail on boot with "no boot device found".

The laptop use UEFI boot, thinking that ghost clone shoul change partition guid, i boot on windows PE and check this point. Everythin is OK (system partition have a good guid).

So I check BCD store, and found that some value was not good. I changed those values (device and osdevice) to reflect the new used drive part.

Trying to boot fail too. So to be sure my bootloader was used, I had a new bootloader entry and set timeout to 30s. boot failed with same error. And now i'm sure the bootloader is not launch on laptop startup.

Furthermore, to be sure that the computer use UEFI boot I disable CSM in BIOS.

Does someone get and idea to workaround that boot failure ?

Below are my diskpart and bcdedit output (sorry that's if french) :

a small resume is Z: is UEFI system partition C:\ is OS partition

 Hi,

I regret the inconvenience.

As I understand after performing clone on your hard drive you are not able to boot your device.

To assist you better let us know whether you have performed SSD clone drives using third party software?

I suggest you re-built the boot record by following the below commands and check if it helps.
You will have to use Windows 10 installation media to follow the steps to boot into Recovery Environment and try to rebuild BCD.

Step 1: I suggest you to create an installation media for Windows 10 using the media creation tool:
Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool using the below link,
https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/software-download/windows10

Step 2: After preparing the installation media, insert it hard reboot the device and follow the below:
1. Boot into Windows Recovery Environment using the Windows 10 installation media.
2. Click on Repair your computer.
3. Click on Troubleshoot and in the Advanced options.
4. Select Command Prompt. Type the following commands into the prompt and press Enter key after each command.
• bootrec /fixmbr
• bootrec /fixboot
• bootrec /scanos
• bootrec /rebuildbcd
    5.  Restart the computer.  

NOTE: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk. 

Hope it helps. Get back to us with the status of your issue we will be happy to help you.

Thank you.

Hi,

Thank you for updating us with the status of your issue.

This is to inform you that BIOS can be configured to specify the order in which the computer will access available bootable hardware devices. The most common bootable devices are: Internal Hard Drive, External USB drive, Optical CD/DVD ROM Drive, and Network Adapter. During the process of checking each device for the required bootable files, if a device fails, the computer verifies that another device is available. If the computer BIOS checks all the listed devices but does not find the bootable files, an error message can occurred.

The issue could occur if BIOS update is required or there is change in boot configure settings.

I suggest you to refer your Manufacturer website and try to download the Bootable BIOS update CD. Then try to install on the computer. And check if it helps.

You are using a GPT disk but your partition layout contains only the BOOT and SYSTEM partitions.

The proper layout must look as:

DISKPART> list part
  Partition ###  Type              Size     Offset
  -------------  ----------------  -------  -------
  Partition 1    Recovery           450 MB  1024 KB
  Partition 2    System             100 MB   451 MB
  Partition 3    Reserved           128 MB   551 MB
  Partition 4    Primary            144 GB   679 MB
  Partition 5    Recovery          5168 MB   144 GB

Partition1: [Optional] Holds a WinRE.wim file

Partition2: EFI partition. Must contain BCD boot configuration database files.

Partition3: MSR partition. Contains some boot code (???)

Partition4: Files of operating system (.\Windows folder)

Partition5: [Optional] Holds install.wim file containing Setup files of Windows.


Disregard the offset and size of partitions after Partition3. First 3 partitions are recommended to have the size like listed above.

Please see here to find out how you could create a proper partition layout:

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh825686.aspx

I also recommend you look at this article that not only explains the guts of GPT/UEFI boot but also provides guidelines to create a proper disk layout for UEFI boot from a GPT disk using PowerShell:

I just installed a Sandisk SSD Plus to replace HDD in a budget Acer Aspire desktop.  Using the cloning software download Sandisk provides, Acronis, my system would not boot.

After some research I downloaded the free version of Aomei Backupper and 'recloned' the SSD following the instructions.  Shutdown the computer, connected the SSD to the SATA cable the HDD was connected to - no issue boot up.

You may want to repeat the clone process with different software.

Advice from a non-professional, semi-serious hobbyist.
