Main Threads:System restore to new solid state drive with warning + not booting
  • I am trying to migrate my Windows 10 installation from an old drive to a new solid state drive. The PC is old and does not support UEFI.I have tried to do a system backup/restore and disk cloning. However, Windows 10 will not boot on the new drive using either methods. I have included a screenshot of the warning I get when I attempt to do a system restore. I do notfully understand the message. I am using your free version. Will the paid for version fix this issue?


  • I found the problem. The disk had for some reason a GPT and not an MBR.

  • You can Clean the GPT disk with Windows Diskpart and it will become an MBR. Then restore and it will boot.
