I'm having a heck of time getting this thing to boot.  A 500GB Samsung Evo 960 Nvme drive.  I have the Samsung EVO driver installed.  All my systems are updated; BIOS, windows, drivers, etc. through the HP Updater.  This computer is brand new, all I've done is install all my software.  My goal was to then clone the drive to an NVME I bought, and use the HDD as storage.  I've tried the Samsung migration software, EaseUS, and Macrium, hoping one of them would do what the other couldn't - clone the drive and make it boot.

 

I'm on an HP 580-137c ... here are the specs... https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c05686933

 

The cloning goes well, but when I turn off the computer, remove the cables from the HDD and restart... I get stuck in a boot loop on the HP logo for a few cycles until it inevitably goes to a  Recovery "Your PC couldn't start properly" screen.  After multiple tries, the operating system on your PC failed to start, so it needs to be repaired. Error code 0xc0000001

I used the Macrium 'boot fix' USB drive tool and that didn't help.  The BIOS show the NVME is the first (and only) drive in the boot sequence.  I have tried with Legacy disabled and enabled, I have tried with Secure Boot disabled and enabled.  I tinkered with it so much my original HDD wouldn't boot and I had to use the Macrium USB on it to fix it, which is how I'm on this forum now.

I'm usually really good with computers... but... I feel like I've read every forum on the internet about installing these, and tried every solution put forth... however none have this specific issue - rebooting at the HP logo screen and then eventually failing to this blue error.  I'm downloading the Windows 10 installation media tool now, hoping I can maybe use it to repair the NVME.  Or at this point, do a fresh install on it, but I'd hate to lose the 300 GB of programs I've already spent days installing.

 

Can anyone help?

Yeah you may need a reinstall, got a backup medium like a external drive?

Well that's good to hear do you have another USB thumb drive? Because if you do and you have another computer we may be in business to backup your files from your current Drive without needing windows. Ever hear of Linux? If not that's fine but if you have more than one USB thumb drive and more than one computer to work with then we may be able to pull the files off your current Drive without losing them during the Windows reinstall process using a Linux live image always comes in handy for this sort of thing in my experience

No...I only have one computer. I have multiple USB though. Maybe an image would work instead of clone?

I tried a repair with a windows 10 usb to no avail. The only thing left to do was install windows. So I used diskpart to clean the nvme, made the disk active, rebooted. Attempted to install windows, saw partition 0 and partition 1. Windows would not install, said it was a recovery partition. Deleted all partitions and tried again. It worked. Windows 10 now boots. Just have to reinstall 300gb of software from my external now... ugh...

I wish the clone method would have worked.
