Mobo asus h97m-e, cpu intel i7 4790, ram 8gb kingston hyper fury, 1tb hdd wd blue 120 ssd kingston hyperx savage.
Bought the ssd and followed instructions from acronis to clone the hdd. When booting afterwards the monitor was blinking nonstop.
Connected the hdd and booted with it and was back to normal formatted ssd and now i cant clone with acronis cause the code given was for one use only :'(
Any idea how i can do with the ssd even after cloning woth some other programme?
Also after some attempts of various things the computer freezes up where the mobo shows up and i cant access bios now. Tried resetting removing battery and the thing with the jumper

I'm not clear what the situation is with a once-only code for Acronis, but Western Digital supply a limited Special Edition of Acronis TrueImage for use with their drives, you should be able to use it to clone:

For the system now freezing, try starting up without the hard drive connected, see if you can enter the BIOS setup normally. If you can, that suggests a hard drive problem, were you noticing any crankiness with the hard drive that helped you decide to try the SSD?

I just built it three weeks ago (everything new) and there were no problems with it at all.
I bought an ssd just because i wanted to see how much faster it goes...
Even without the hard drive the problem keeps up

Knowing what this involves could help with diagnosis.

Generally, double check nothing has become dislodged when swapping drives in & out, then continue eliminating connected devices. If that board gives BIOS beep codes for error conditions, is there something to reproduce them? Doesn't look like there's a beeper on the board.
