    You were supposed to burn the CONTENTS of that iso file, and not the ISO itself. Burn it using ImgBurn.

    Whatever happened to our mindreading abilities......

    As for my Pc,

    I took out the now fully working windows 8.1 500Gb SSD and put back in the 250Gb SSD and am stuck in DISKPART

    Looking at 12 Drive/Partitions (connected to the other Drives I have).

    With 'Volume 2' as Partition at 100Mb FAT32 with no drive letter

    and

    With 'Volume 16' as an NTFS Partition of 300Mb with no drive letter...

    I really would like to fix the boot up; as I would then clone the drive to the larger SSD as I have Dozens of programs and links to thousands of files to re-install and re-connect otherwise.


    Should I start a thread on my similar issue ???

    After a lot of attempts .......

    THIS (solution below) FIXED IT...............
    (after selecting the Windows 8.1 Pro option in the Blue Screen Repair program via the USB device that was downloaded via the link given in this thread [as I had the choice of two O/S because one of my hard drives was from Windows 7 out of an older laptop (I also upgraded to Windows 8.1])

    QUOTE


    Go into the Advanced options and run the Command Prompt.
    Enter diskpart to use the DiskPart tool to ensure you have all the right partitions and to identify your EFI partition - the key thing here is that your EFI partition is formatted as FAT32:
    DISKPART> sel disk 0

    Disk 0 is now the selected disk.

    DISKPART> list vol

    Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info
    ---------- --- ----------- ----- ---------- ------- --------- --------
    Volume 0 E DVD-ROM 0 B No Media
    Volume 1 C NTFS Partition 195 GB Healthy Boot
    Volume 2 WINRE NTFS Partition 400 MB Healthy Hidden
    Volume 3 FAT32 Partition 260 MB Healthy System
    Then assign a drive letter to the EFI partition:
    DISKPART> sel vol 3

    Volume 3 is the selected volume.

    DISKPART> assign letter=b:

    DiskPart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point.
    Exit DiskPart tool by entering exit and at the command prompt run the following:
    cd /d b:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\

    bootrec /fixboot
    Delete or rename the BCD file:
    ren BCD BCD.bak
    Use bcdboot.exe to recreate BCD store:
    bcdboot c:\Windows /l en-gb /s b: /f ALL
    The /f ALL parameter updates the BIOS settings including UEFI firmware/NVRAM, /l en-gb is to localise for UK/GB locale. The localisation defaults to US English, or use en-US.
    Reboot and cross your fingers.


    (I had to use jp-ja as I am in Japan [tried many attempts using 'en-us' etc)


    This gave me headaches. I was going in circles for a long while. There isn't a lot of reliable info about fixing UEFI/Windows 8 at the time of writing.
    [EDIT]
    To re-enable Hyper-V, I also had to run the following from an Administrator Command Prompt within Windows after rebooting:

    No problemo.

    Thought I would stick in the newly discovered fix.

    Saved me a month of work.

    Now to 'Magician' clone the SSD while the going is good....

    But it is good to know once you know.

    Now:
    How does one clone a drive that refuses to be cloned (or 'Imaged' [and refuses to be 'Data Migrated']); and/or refuses to be copied via Macrium Reflect &/or EaseUS...

    Damn & blast...
    200 attempts and counting the hours going into days.

    Latest try said;-
    "Backup Aborted! - Failed to create Volume Snapshot. Result Code 0x80042306"

    That is from a Samsung EVO 250Gb SSD that works perfect; but will not go to either a bigger SSD nor a spinning disc.

    An I have disabled everything I was supposed to disable according to a multitude of people.

    No worries. Its just the computer people who know more than us who make it so difficult.
