Using bootable Macrium Reflect - Server Edition - v7.2.4325 - Windows RE 10 Release 1809
The External SSD I am using is called JMicron Generic 1507
I have the Intel Rapid Storage Driver on the target machine.
The issue is that I am attempting to clone from the JMicron to the internal SSD of the HP Pavilion Model 15t-eg000 as I have done many times on other machines that have an m.2 drive successfully. The clone completes after I drag my partitions, etc. However, when I boot the machine after, it boots straight to Windows Could not Repair.
I performed the same steps on an HP Elitebook 830 G6 and the laptop boots without issue right to OOBE. So I know there is not an issue with the image I am using.
There is no BIOS setting I can find on the HP Pavilion device that would help (such as SATA mode or something).
I have even externalized the M.2 by putting t it into an m.2 to SATA adapter and cloning it using our desktop cloning machines running Macrium Reflect - Server Edition v.7.2.4971 Technicians License.
I have attached photos of my process and the failure I am experiencing. Any bits of help is greatly appreciated. I have contacted HP Tech Support and they cannot help with cloning other images.
