Can't boot from USB after fitting new hard drive



  • Ralph Smith

    Update. I reinstalled the old hard drive (the failing one) and the computer booted from the USB just fine.  Put the new drive back in and again it won't boot from USB.

    Hi Ralph,


    This is certainly strange, but sounds like it is primarily a function of your device's BIOS/UEFI. I don't think CloudReady can help here.


    You might find that if you isntall CloudReady to the saem SSD on another device, you can transfer the pre-installed SSD over to the Asus and it will run. Otherwise, trying a different ssd is my only idea.
