    Maybe it needs something for the SSD drive, is there a driver for a controller card or anything? But if this is an image file it wold have made a whole system image including drivers. Therefore, if you are putting this on an SSD drive it would fail. You made the image on a mechanical drive, tried to send it to a SSD drive? Also, it this a Windows 8 WIM file or Windows 7, it would give you an error of you were trying to use a WIM file made in Windows 7.

    Well, can you make any images of the error, like on a phone with a camera or something? I'd like to see what it is doing. Basically, I think you made the image with a mechanical hard drive in the system, and if you are putting it into a system with an SSD drive, there may be a driver conflict, If you can take pics of each step, and any error messages, it would make the issue more clear for me.
