I have a problem about transition from HDD to SSD.
I have a Sony Vaio laptop (a third gen Intel) which came with a HDD. For higher speeds I bought a new OCZ vector SSD to replace it and a HDD box to make a portable HDD from the old one.
Then I removed the HDD, installed the SSD, cloned the HDD to the SSD with Norton ghost and rebooted.
After the reboot, the system report failed to boot (missing winload.efi) and need recovery. Is there anything goes wrong? I have no idea. The contents on the HDD and the SSD look quite the same.
I need your suggestion, if I must clean install the system at least hope you can show me how to backup the licence...
Of course the best thing is change something in the boot to minimize the work.
