    Hi there,

    Thank you for the quick reply.

    Basically I made a HDD back up prior to upgrading my whole system with acronis.

    I reflashed my HDD image once back to the original HDD after injecting the required drives via acronis then used paragon to make the system bootable since it was blue screening from the get go, which paragon stopped long enough for me to get in and resolve any driver issues.

    I had my system working for sometime then the HDD died so I have now had to port that image (the one prior to hardware upgrades) to the new HDD and start over again fixing up driver issues etc.

    The old hardware was a gigabyte board with an fx8350 and an rx560 upgraded to a b450m steel legend motherboard with a gtx 1660 ventus and a ryzen 3200g.

    HDD's and other preps keyboard mouse dvd drive all the same.

    Yes I was using the software provided at the start of this thread due to it showing how to use the software and wasn't sure how to do it in the new one.

    Now my system seems stable after running chkdsk on my drives there was a few files that were corrupted but fixed/moved now all drives coming up clean with chkdsk /f /r.

    The only issue I have had BSOD wise is a 'memory_management' BSOD. I forgot to mention above I am now using DDR4 sticks. One is a 16gb kingston stick and another is klisre 16gb stick (chinese branded stuff not showing in mobo compatability list).

    I have checked both RAM sticks with memtest86 which comes up clean.

    I initially had just the chinese ram stick which the motherboard would not boot, since this was purchased from aliexpress it took sometime to get this stick so I need ram fast and went and got some from the shop as my machine already has had alot of down time hence why I have 2 mixed sticks.

    After adding the kingston stick to the machine it booted fine and also picked up the chinese branded stick and confirms both sticks are working in the machine.

    Can a system have issues with ram even if its cleared by memtest86 such as BSOD's due to the ram being mixed?

    Its basically the only error I have concerns about in my machine and would like some advice/insight from anyone who can confirm.

    There is also a cheap chinese branded SSD in the system however there were never any BSOD's on my old machine when using this goldenfir SSD. My OS is just on a normal HDD due to OS/other files taking up a ton of space greater than the SSD.

    My test is hitting ceiling, needs help,

    my test using Paragon Adaptive Restore 2010 (post#1), on Windows 7 64x GPT, was transferring from HP Elite 8300 to HP 800 G1.

    boot-->restart, everything looked fine. Windows 7 music sounded, , ,installed various drivers, , , then popped up "Restart". At this time, it's noticed, either USB HP keyboard or mouse not working, no way to click the button of "Restart". had to power down manually to "Restart".

    my both HP kb/mouse worked fine while navigating the BIOS until Windows logo starts, then they both are dead, red LED light gone. I tried Logitech wireless mouse on USB port, not working too. this confirmed it's USB port issue.
    I don't have any PS/2 devices to try at this time.

    I tried several times in last days, trying to add USB drivers. but all failed.
    Within the whole thread (pg1 to pg26), there was an ID mentioned a similar problem. his fix was using wireless devices (below link)

    obviously paragon adjusted USB drivers and disabled/cleaned out USB driver. my question is why my USB/USB3 re-install failed/not recognized (cannot be detected).

    It works on win7 x64 gpt. I tested it 2 days ago.

    you could try uninstalling the usb3 drivers using dism++ in case they are causing an issue.

    Paragon Adaptive Restore 2010 is very old. it shouldn't involve with USB3. nor should HP 800 G1.

    I was searching paragon web, unfortunately, it doesn't give solutions. Just says, "This happens due to lack of drivers."

    As far as I know, paragon p2p doesn't do anything to usb.

    That is why it is possible your usb3 drivers from hp8300 might be causing some problem on the switch to the G1.
