I have been running into this issue sometimes when cloning HDDs to new SSDs and was wondering is anyone had some ideas; I use Aomei and EaseUS normally to clone disks and any Windows 7 one will work fine, but sometimes with Windows 8 disks the SSD won't boot, giving me
The application or operating system couldn’t be loaded because a required file is missing or contains errors.
Error code: 0xc0000225
So I always try startup repair and sometimes that will fix it, other times I have to try a bunch of fixes from the web like fixing the bootrec and such, but I've had a couple disks that just will not boot no matter what, I even tried the Easy Recovery Essentials but can't get that to even boot if anyone has used it before. I'm mainly just looking for ideas because I think the issue is that the partitions on the original HDD usually have one primary one, and a few recovery ones, but on the cloned SSD all of the partitions are set as primary, and I can't figure out how to change that.
