I have done it 3-4x before, but on a different laptop (using same SSD, software, and same dock).
Now I am on a Dell laptop with Windows 8 (previously win 7).
Previously I would open the software, go through all the steps, put the SSD in, and bingo, it was all good.
But now, it seems to copy ok (as I can open the SSD while connected and all the files etc are on there), but when I put it in my laptop, it gives an error message.
Something like "fail, no bootable disk".
I have tried using Acronis, Paragon, and Miray.
Is there anything in bios I need to check/change? It is set to AHCI now.
Should I just put the SSD in and load from the OS discs? Will that even work?
The laptop does pick it up (both before and after I have cloned it), so that is not the problem.
I can format it, or view files in it etc.
