Does not work when cloning from one laptop to another (0xc0000225 winload.efi)

I bought a Razer Blade 14 last month.  It went on sale for $500 off, so I backed up the 1st one and restored to the 2nd one.

I tried Disk Backup and System Backup.  I created Windows PE Bootable media to restore the backup onto the new laptop.  With Disk Backup, the partition layout duplicated fine (Recovery 11.72GB NTFS, System 100MB fat32, c:Blade 226GB) where System Backup want to cram them into one partition.

Anyway, either way I try, I can't boot the target.  I just get a blue screen titled Recovery with 0xc0000225.  Pressing Enter to try again adds: File:\Windows\system32\winload.efi
