I’m trying to migrate my Notebook HDD (Asus q550lf-bbi7t07 with Windows 8.1 OEM) to my new SSD drive (SSD Intel 530 Series 240Gb).

I tried to clone the original drive to SSD drive with many tools:

  • List item
  • Intel® Data Migration Software
  • EaseUS
  • Acronis
  • Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 4.0 (I bought the full license)
  • MiniTool Partition Wizard
  • GParted
  • Asus Backtracker (installation failure)

In all cases Windows worked properly for 2 or 3 minutes and then its throws me a “blue screen of death” and redirect me to the BIOS (The BIOS does not recognize the drive until I turn off and turn back the PC, then everything repeats...)

I tried to install a clean Windows 8, but I can't because when I have to select the Partition to be installed, its throws me an error (code 0x80070002)

I think it may be an error related to UEFI.

Any of you went through the same situation as me? What should I do?

  • Just to verify you created a complete clone of the hdd and restored the image to the ssd? – Ramhound Jan 25 '14 at 13:28
  • Yes, I also tried it – Diego D Jan 25 '14 at 13:31
  • How large is the source drive? If you copied 250GB of the source drive sector by sector it should have worked. – Ramhound Jan 25 '14 at 13:40
  • The source drive have 1TB, but on a trial I reduced OS partition to 200GB with the same result. Currently I have 40GB used. – Diego D Jan 25 '14 at 13:45
  • So you have a single partition of 200GB and the rest of the 1TB drive is unused space without a partition. When you created the image you selected sector by sector correct? What version of Acrnois did you use, because the process I described, has worked for lots of people. – Ramhound Jan 25 '14 at 13:50

In my case, "Samsung Migration" doesn't work on windows 8.1. Ofcourse there's no problem on Win 8. But the "DriveClone" works on Windows 8.1 properly. I recommend you to use it. "Ease us" worked good too.
