    Series 530 Restart During Data Migration Boots to Windows

    BossHog

      I have a Toshiba laptop series C855 running Windows 8.1.  I am trying to clone the hard drive to a series 530 240gb SSD.  The SSD has been updated to firmware DC32 on another system.  When connected via USB, the SSD is recognized in Windows 8.1  and has been initialized but not formatted. But when similarly connected via USB, the drive is not recognized by the Intel SSD Toolbox on the laptop or on the Windows 7 desktop used to update the firmware.  When I run the Intel data migration software, upon the reboot that should begin the cloning operation, the laptop goes to a screen that lists boot devices from the bios, but the migration software bootloader does not run.  I read in a post that I should interrupt the boot and select the Acronis bootloader in the bios.  I don't know what that means and neither does Toshiba.  I have cloned many hard drives and never had a problem with Acronis True Image, but I don't know how to get it to work in this case.  What do I need to do???
