    Windows 8.1 clone only boots after Paragon Bootfix


    Hi, I just got my first windows 8 laptop and cloned the ssd to a larger ssd. Upon booting I receive a 0xc0000034 error. If I boot using the paragon usb tools I can get the system to boot properly after choosing fix the windows install (top option, from memory sorry if the term is not 100% correct) I have to do this every time I boot up. Is there a way to make this permanent? Anyone run into this?

    Thanks.

    So I tried that but it did not seem to work. It said it could not repair. Although after that I was able to boot successfully into windows. The next time I rebooted it changed from windows boot manager to windows boot manager on disk 1

    Well I was able to resolve this. I used EasyUEFI and deleted the secondary windows boot manager and everything seems to be OK. Thanks for the help.
