I tried to replace the original Seagate Baracuda HDD (1T) with an HP S700 (1T) SSD. I used Acronis 2017. The first attempt was with disk cloning, it didn't work. The second attempt was with old disk image and put the image on the new ssd. Everything went well, but the PC does not want to boot from the new SSD. Instantly a blue screen with repair or reboot option appears, which does not work. I can't even get into the bios. The old disk is Dynamic. Is there another way to clone the old disk to the new one? Does HP have a tool? I have to check something through the BIOS, because I don't know what to do anymore!

The old disk being Dynamic is a SERIOUS issue as that means that at one time, you (or someone else) tried to FORCE the creation of too many partitions on the drive, which automatically resulted in them all being changed from Simple Volumes to Dynamic Disks.
There are utilities out there that claim to be able to convert from one to another, but I can't recommend any of them, and the advice from Microsoft is to erase the entire volume and recreate it as a Simple Volume.
