Did the BIOS ever recognize the SSD?

Me too!

Sorry to have taken all your time- though it is greatly appreciated.

I'll call Acronis tomorrow - I'm sure they can tell me what I did wrong or how to correct it.

If not, I'll buy that program that was suggested in a previous post.
It's worth it to me to not have to reinstall everything.

It's no problem at all man, I'm just sorry I couldn't fix your problem. I promise when you are up and running you will love that SSD! The problems you are having will pay off in the end. If I knew more about that software, maybe I could help you figure it out.........every time I have installed an SSD it has been a fresh install.

If you need any other help, just PM me, we'll work through it.

I'm still confused as to why the recovery of OS from the Acronis backup did not make the drive bootable
I assume your original hard drive had at least 2 partitions: C and System Reserved.

When you used Acronis to "copy" the original installation, do you know for a fact that you made an image of BOTH of those partitions?

Or did you image C only?
Your message from email does not appear in this forum (Have you tried various ports for the SSD? And a different set of cables?)

Don't know why - anyway, I tried different ports , but I don't have any other cables - don't think it matters anyway, since they are perfectly fine on the other HDDs

You need to "clone" your HDD to ssd. Not "recovery ". That is why you do not see the system reserved and why it did not "copy" it and also why it will not boot from ssd.

The $20 program talked about above does a great job. It was made just for that. Its a one trick pony.

Arconis will do the samething though... I never used Arconis to do it, so can't say how well it does at it.

If you want to try it ....wipe the ssd and "clone" the HDD over to the SSD.

I'll give that a shot, but in the past when I used that option (Clone) from a clean backup, it would not boot.

I did have success with the recovery option, though.

The only issue with cloning is alignment on the SSD. Sometimes it works, other times not. Paragon does that for you.
