Hi there, Im kind of in trouble with this one. I swapped out a HDD in a samsung NP355E5C-A01AU laptop which i cloned all the recovery partitions from the original to the new HDD. Its a windows 8 partition and everything seems to be there but the laptop wont boot from it at all, it just goes into bios. I did get it to try and read from the recovery partition but get a "MBR error 1" when it tries to boot from it. I used aronis disk director 11 to do the cloning if that helps. Also the original HDD was a GPT partition and thats wat i have formatted the drive as. Ive done some reading and acronis can be a bit of a pain when cloning recovery partitions and it will give u this MBR error. Not sure exactly how to fix it but want to learn for future reference.
