Trying to fix GPT Partition name corruption from cloning HDD to SDD using Todo EaseUS (what a mistake that was!). System works but generates XML script errors when doing disk image backup (2155348129). I can boot to the ssd, but if I select to boot from the HDD the SDD no longer shows in device manager, disk manager or diskpart even though it is detected in BIOS. If I could get it to show up, I could use diskpart to clean & repartition either while running windows from the HDD or with the HDD disconnected from a windows installation usb drive. Alternatively, if I could find the source for the XML script data element GptName I might be able to edit. Is it in the registry?
- Download some kind of Linux live ISO (I prefer SystemRescueCD), burn it to a DVD(RW) and boot it.
Identify the SSD with
blkid. Sample output:
sda 8:0 0 232,9G 0 disk ├─sda1 8:1 0 512M 0 part └─sda2 8:2 0 232,4G 0 part sdb 8:16 0 2,7T 0 disk ├─sdb1 8:17 0 16G 0 part └─sdb2 8:18 0 2,7T 0 part sr0 11:0 1 669,8M 0 rom
In this case, my SSD is
sda(it has ~250G of space, seen in the third column).
Open parted (substitute sda with your device identifier):
# parted /dev/sda GNU Parted 3.2 Using /dev/sda Welcome to GNU Parted! Type 'help' to view a list of commands. (parted)
mklabel gpt. This will create a new GPT partition table. (All your data on that drive will be lost!)
- Quit out of parted by typing in
quitand then type
rebootto reboot the system.
- Now you should be able to install Windows on that partition without any errors!
