    I cloned the drive that's in the computer with Acronis. I switched the drives the SSD as the primary drive and the old HD as secondary. When I booted the system it booted from the old drive. In windows the system sees the ssd as the D: drive and the old drive as C:

    Welcome to EightForums.

    1) Remove old HD Drive, & see if SSD boots. If no.

    2) Use Paragon
    The only 3rd party software that I know of, that fully supports Windows 8 is PARAGON 12.

    Wow! There is a solution.
