    Question G751 Cloning issue to Samsung SSD

    Hello, recently I purchased the G751jT-CH71. I also bought a Samsung 850 evo 240 GB ssd to install. I Can't seem to get the drive to clone properly. i have tried 3 times using the magician software. I made sure i selected both partitions when i cloned the drive. But every time i do windows just says preparing desktop when i try to boot from the SSD. What is weird is it boots to the SSD if the original HDD is still installed in the slave slot, but even when it boots the metro apps all break and system settings and windows update wont work.

    If i pull the HDD the computer will not boot at all. It just states "preparing windows" when i type in my password.

    If I remove the SSD and boot from the HDD everything works flawlessly.

    if anyone has any insight i would appreciate it. I have cloned OS's before with Samsung magician and never had these issues.

    Thanks,

    Berwatchey

    Try again this time copy the disk not the partitions select the Disk after the clone shut down and remove the HD then boot up your SSD. put your hard drive in a USB adapter and format it to remove all boot records. then you can put the hard drive back in. UEFI is a little different than MBR was.

    I really prefer Macrium Reflect its free and work great every time.

    Your Disk has multiple partitions on it. Some of these partitions my not be visible. So when you clone your disk you do just that , not clone what ever partitions you see. I have no idea what Samsung is using for cloning software but there all basically the same. Where it asks you which disk you want to clone/Copy/move/Image? select your hard drive. Where is ask you where you want to clone/copy/move/Image, however they ask you, select your SSD

    Ok, I downloaded the software you recommended. My confusion was due to Samsung's interface on their software. it showed just the 2 partitions, when in fact there are about 6 when viewed with the software you suggested. I will try it tonight when I get off work and post here if it works.

    Thanks again,

    I had a similar problem with an older windows 7 SP1 notebook with a cloned Crucial MX100 512GB SATA 3 SSD where Windows update wouldn't work. The solution was to update the SATA driver in device manager and then all windows features worked flawlessly.

    So I took your advice and re-cloned using Marcium reflect and it worked perfectly. I now have a Fast SSD as a boot drive w/ a 1TB storage drive. Thanks for the advice. Apparently Samsung Magician did not like how ASUS formatted the hard drive in 2 partitions and was missing some files. Marcium did not have this issue and cloned flawlessly. I'll be using it for all my cloning needs in the future. Thanks again!

    Yea when I got my Samsung they were using ghost to clone. Back then Ghost and many other clone/Image programs would not work in UEFI mode. MR would work so they have gotten very popular they also have great tech support and support forum.

    When I try to use Marcrium Reflect to clone the HD to the SSD, it keeps telling me "not all partitions copied. Insufficient space." I don't understand as ththere is under 250 g used up total on the HD.
