Hi, I want to install a new ssd instead of the hdd that came with my new laptop, HP envy 15.
But since my hp recovery dvd wont work on my ssd I put in the laptop I need to create a usb boot hdd with a image of the original C: then switch the old hdd to the new sdd, boot from the usb hdd and recover the copied c: to the ssd.
But I cannot create a usb boot drive because it is set as "basic" and not a removable media, a "dynamic device" this can be changed in disk manager but does not work for me, I get an error message that "the operation is not supported by the object"
Someone told me this could simply be because I am using a laptop and programs such as acronis get confused with usb hdd. Could that be true? sound weird as obviously people have done this before me...
Please help me, I am all out of ideas!
Hello, I would like to let you know that regular imaging software to back up or restore information from a regular hard drive to an Solid State Drive will not work since this type of software was not meant to work using Solid State Drives, SSD’s work in a very different way than a regular Hard drive so they won’t work.
Had the same problem. Acronis does not recognoze the ITNEL x25-m SSD. I gave up and the SSD is notw in the dustbin. I found out (too late) that even Intel reconizes this problem of non-recognotion. I still want to migrate my Asus UL30 notebook to SSD but seeking a suitable hardware/software combination.
Have you tried the Intel Data Migration Software available at; http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&ProdId=3113&DwnldID=19324&ProductFamily=Solid+State+Drives+and+Caching&ProductLine=Intel%c2%ae+High+Performance+Solid+State+Drive&ProductProduct=Intel%c2%ae+X25-E+Solid+State+Drive%2c+64GB+SATA+II+2.5in%2c+SLC%2c+High+Performanceeng ?
If not, give it a try. There is a user guide availabe for download too that will walk you through the steps.
