Hello, I recently purchased a SanDisk 3D SSD (1TB).
I plugged it in, and cloned my previous 500 GB HDD onto it using Acronis True Image WD Edition. I plan to leave the previous HDD installed as extra disk space on my desktop, so I just left it in SATA slot 1, the SSD is in SATA 2.
The cloning worked, because I can see the new SSD and start programs from it.
Now, when I try to boot the system (Windows 10) from the SSD using the BIOS and manually selecting it, it doesn’t work. I get a loading screen, and then a black screen with occasionally my mouse cursor flashing up with sometimes a loading circle next to it.
When I boot again from the HDD, I checked the partitioned SSD. There is 3 partitions on it, one being called “system” (the original HDD had 2 partitions (C: and D:) only, don’t know why the System now has it’s own partition) with 220 MB free of 498 MB. When I click on it, it appears empty and shows no folders in it, despite obviously having about 280 MB in there. 'Should I see something here? Is this the problem?
Somehow the SSD won’t boot correctly
