Hi All,

Been using Macrum Reflect for quite a while as my backup tool.
However, I just wanted to move my quite small & now full up 75GB boot drive from one SSD to another larger SSD.

So I took a new full image of the boot drive, and restored that image to the new SSD. Hoping that I would simply be able to boot into that new SSD.

However, it won't boot... and at first sight I can see why. There doesn't seem to have been one the Windows 7 100MB System Reserved partitions created on that new SSD, which are far as I know are required to boot into.

This is weird, because one of the options I was offered when I restored the image was to use the MBR from the image on the new location. Which I selected.

Any ideas what's happening here...? Any ideas how I can get the restored image in a bootable state?

Many Thanks

Thanks for posting.

Did you backup the MSR when you created the backup? If did you should be able to restore both without any issues.

Let us know how it goes.

Kind Regards,

Martin - Macrium Support
