Windows 7: SSD Upgrade : Not able to boot from new SSD disk

SSD Upgrade : Not able to boot from new SSD disk

Hello All,


I want to upgrade the hard disk for my laptop HDD to SSD.

With the help of Mini tool partition wizard I migrated my OS to the new SSD disk(Sandisk SSD Plus) with SATA USB adapter.


After migration to SSD, I removed the HDD and installed the SSD.
But when I started my laptop I got the message as "no bootable device found".
In my BIOS setting there is specific option for SSD .

I tried updating the BIOS to F.48 from HP website, still worse, not able to enter into BIOS now.
Please check the Error_BIOS image attached



Please let me know what went wrong here and what I am missing .

Welcome to the forum. The error means the boot sector wasnt copied. Did you copy all partitions. Can you post a screen shot from disk manager of the old drive and the new one so we can see

The partitions dont match but i cant see full details it can be a problem as it copies partitions and doesnt clone the drive. I should clone the should drive you can delete resize SanDisk SSD Cloning Software to Clone HDD


If you get tit to boot there are extra setting you need to cary out Optimize Windows for SSDs - Thomas-Krenn-Wiki

Looks like Disk0 is dynamic.

That could be the problem. It is usually better to either clone the entire disk, or convert dynamic disk to basic first.

However, it is possible minitool copied the partitions correctly, but failed to set an active flag. Maybe setting the system partition (F) active will do the trick.

Not clear from your post - is that just the disk diagnostics that gives the error? What do you mean by "not able to enter bios" ?

Thanks for your suggestions. Finally it worked.

First I converted the Dynamic disk to Basic disk.
Second I cloned the HDD to SSD.




Now I have issue of "Hard Disk Error" 3F1 while starting the laptop.
Please check the attachment.

Hard disk test also PASSED.
Kindly let me know how this error can be solved.

Swap the connectors to the disk. It is a common mistake
