Thread needs solution

Hi,

Hoping you can help.

I cloned my HDD to SSD using Acronis True Image and completed succesfully. However, now the SSD will not detect the Bootcamp partition even though I can see and view files on the Bootcamp partition, I cannot actually boot into this.

Can you advise on how I go about resolving this?

Thanks in advance

What's the version of OS X and the version of Acronis used for the clone?

When you boot the system from a cold start (power completely off) and hold the "option" key, does it show the availability to boot into Windows bootcamp from there, or not even then?

OS X is El Capitan and I used ATI 2016 but this was done on a windows PC not on the Mac itself. But when booting SSD in Mac it doesn't recognise the windows/bootcamp partition on boot and neither does it show on a cold start.

 

thanks

You need to backup the entire disk using the Mac version of Acronis and not the Windows version of Acronis. The Windows version doesn't support OS X Journaled disks and will attempt to format based on Windows partition schemes during the restore.
