BFSVC: No process found using \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume2\Bo

Hello, I installed a SSD for older PC running Windows 7 Pro. SP 1, the SSD drive is d:, bootable Win7 drive is c:. I used Acronis True Image 2015 to clone c: to d:, now I want to switch bootable drive from c: to d:

C: Healthy (System,Boot,Page File, Active, Crash Dump, Primary Partition)
D: Healthy (Active, Primary Partition)

I found thread on running bcdboot.exe, but I get following error when I run

C:\Windows>bcdboot c:\windows /s d: /v
BFSVC: No process found using \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume2\Boot file.
BFSVC: BfspSetSecurityDescriptor(\\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume2\Boot) failed!
Last Error = 0x5BFSVC: Error copying boot files from c:\windows\boot\PCAT to \\?\GLOBALROOT\Device\HarddiskVolume2\Boot! Last Error = 0x5
Failure when attempting to copy boot files.

I downloaded MS hotfix from this URL, hotfix was allowed on my Win7:

Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Welcome to the forum. If you have cloned the drive both drives should have the same partition layout and should boot straight away. The problem will be you have 2 disk the same with same signature. Clone the drive remove the old c put d as drive 0 on the sata ports and it should work. Did you boot from Acronis disk to do the clone as you cant do it from within windows

Thanks samuria, I thought I need to see the SSD drive have "System,Boot" attributes before trying to boot off it, I was wring. I'm more of a Unix person, hope that doesn't offend to many people here. Thanks again all is good and SSD cloning has revitalized my older desktop.
