I installed a WD Blue SN550 NVMe SSD in a Pavilion 15cc178cl running Win 10 Home 64. The drive was recognized by the WIN 10 Disk Management utility as drive F:. I then cloned it from the C: using Macrium Reflect. After cloning, File Explore showed the C: and F: to be exactly the same. I accessed the BIOS (InsydeH20.Rev 5.0) and selected the new SSD as the boot drive under the OS Boot Manager submenu of the UEFI Boot Order menu, I then pressed ESC and Fn 10 to save the selection. After doing this, the computer still booted up from the C: and not the SSD drive. I have also tried changing the boot drive using WIN 10 Settings but that didn’t work either. What am I missing or doing wrong?
After disconnecting the HDD the computer would not boot from the SSD and I got a Windows message saying, “Your device ran into a problem and needs to restart”. After restarting I got another error message, “Your PC couldn’t start properly” with an error code: 0xc0000001 and instructed to use recovery tools. Window recovery tools did not work but I was able to recover to Window by using the Macrium Reflect Recovery Disk I created before cloning my HDD to the SDD. Not sure what I did wrong and why the SSD never worked, but I appreciate the help.
