I have purchased an SSD and installed it - in addition to my existing SATA drive.
I want to use the SSD to contain my Windows and programs, leaving my data on the SATA drive.
I have cloned the Windows partition to SSD and set it as Primary and Actve, but when I boot, with priority set to the SSD in BIOS, I get "boot loader not found" (or similar, please forgive me, but I did not note the exact error message; however, that was the gist of it - boot sector).
By overriding boot disk order I can still boot into my SATA disk, but now I am afraid of bricking my laptop (the SSD sits in a caddy which replaced my CD/DVD optical drive, so it won't be easy to recover if I brick it).
Can anyone please point me at a step by step to boot from the new SSD? Thanks in advance.
I want to boot from SSD and delete the Windows partition on the SATA, using it for data.
