In a previous question, https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/672913/computer-fails-to-boot/page-2#entry4463510) I described how my computer wouldn't boot. After no progress, I bought a new SSD. I restored my macrium backup image to the new SSD, and it still wouldn't boot. The computer would not recognize a boot device at all. Next, I tried a fresh windows install on the new ssd. The computer successfully booted into the windows installation.

 

So what exactly is going on here? Why won't the the computer boot with the old windows installation? What can I try to do to fix that? Is there another way to transfer my macrium backup image to the new installation of windows?

 

The previous installation and new installation are both windows 10.

I have no idea why this worked but I ran

bcdboot N:\windows /s M:

with the relevant drives as described here. I ran bootrec fixmbr and fixboot after that but I don't know if those actually did actually.

and now it boots again!!!!!!!! Nothing was lost either.
