Running a new SSD from a USB Drive.

HP Pavillion K3E00EA#ABU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to replace the hard drive in my PH Pavilion Notebook K3E00EA#ABU with an SSD.  I have cloned the hard disc and it works on my son's laptop via a USB.  However when run on my Laptop I get a warning with stop code: Inaccessible boot device.

@BernardMH 

You said you CLONED the HDD, but did you copy ALL the needed partitions, or just the OS partition?

 

You would also need the boot partition, which is typically named System Reserved, in order for the SSD to be bootable.

Thanks for your reply.  As I managed to get it to work with my sons PC, I think that the Acronis true image software has copied across the required partitions.  I'm going to try and install the SSD and take out the old hard disk and see if it works.

I installed the SSD drive and took out the old disc drive and it worked.  This issue seems to relate to the co-existence of the two drives.
