Hi All,

 

   I'm wondering if you could please assist me...

 

I have a HP Laptop with an M.2 drive that won't boot and apparently the drive has an imminent failure.

I tried cloning the original M.2 drive to a new M.2 NVME drive, both through external M.2 drive to USB enclosures on another laptop, which seemed to work fine.

But now after replacing the new M.2 drive, the laptop doesn't recognise the new drive and won't boot.

Laptop: HP (Model# 15-db0020AU)

Clone Software used: Macrium Reflect

New Drive: Netac NVME M.2 SSD PCIe Gen3x4 2280

 

Can you please help?

 

Many Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Adz.

Adz, some initial comments:

First, this forum is only for Acronis applications, not for Macrium Reflect which has its own forums and support structure.

Second, with Acronis, I would never recommend using cloning for a scenario such as yours.  I would always recommend making a full Disks & Partitions backup image of the original source drive, then using that backup image in any further operations such as restoring it to a new drive.

See forum topic: Steve migrate NVMe SSD where I have documented (with images) the process that I have used multiple times for my own laptops using Backup & Recovery.
