    Try updating the drivers.

    I don't have a drive enclosure recommendation for an SSD as I have never used one, shopped for one, or researched them. Sorry.

    Ok thanks.

    What if I make an image of the windows drive (c, it came with that and a d: which is empty.

    If I can save an image of c: onto the d: of the laptop, then swap in the ssd.

    Then use the recovery disk where I am asked to load an image.......then hopefully the USB enclosure will work with the hdd and load the image?

    Worth a try?

    Thanks again

    Confused. Your laptop came with two drives (or do you mean partitions?) with one empty? Regardless, not sure why you think what you are saying would work better on the SSD than what you already have tried. I have never used the Asus UX32VD recovery disc so I am not sure what would happen (different size drive partition or whatever). I can't recommend that you try your suggested approach. As mentioned before, be sure you are well backed up before becoming too adventuresome. What does your Disk Management show for partitions?

    Thanks everyone for all the help and suggestions! It worked! The original plan worked using Paragon to migrate to the new SSD.

    The issue I had was connecting the SSD to save the image there. Turns out the USB enclosure I used did not have enough power. I tried a self powered USB enclosure for the SSD and all is good.

    Thanks again!

    You are very welcome. Glad Paragon worked/I could help. Paragon is the man. So, is theog--who came up with the tutorial.
