Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Operating system not found

I have windows 7 pro 64x installed on a 120GB SSD which I cloned to a 250GB SSD but now my computer wont detect windows when I try to boot from either. I can boot to both of them when put into another computer so I know the OS itself is fine, I just can't get the correct computer to detect an OS on any hard drives, even if the drives themselves are detected.

    I would suggest tp reload your OS or run a recovery on it. Even though you believe your OS to be fine, it may need one or some of the original info from the beginning. Feel free to let me know what happens. I myself have had to run a full recovery on my Asus K55A about a half dozen times now for various issues now in less than a year.

I have run into this problem before after just changing out my RAM and adding another HHD for more storage I had to just simply reload my Windows 7 64 bit OS. after a reboot, no more problems.

How to clone an hard disk


If you're trying to clone 8.1 to a hard drive or SSD, Macrium Reflect OS migration to SSD does a pretty good job. I've had several successes with it and some failures. If you're cloning to a SSD, I suggest using a Kingston with Macrium Reflect; it appears to be better suited for the software and has the highest success rate.

Macrium Reflect is free, or pay if you wish. Make sure you burn a rescue CD; you will likely need it to finish the cloning process for your cloned drive. It is required to clear up the errors.

My pc 2500k with 3.30 ghz and motherboard intel DH67CL but works slow


The symptom you describe is too vague, but you can try the following tune-up procedures. First, download and install and run Malwarebytes free version. This will root out any bad stuff/malware/virus. Next, download and install the excellent free utility program called CCleaner from Majorgeeks.com or Download.CNET.com. Run CCleaner to remove tons of junk files that may be slowing your computer. Next, if you have a regular spinning hard drive, run Defragmenter in Windows. Be patient with all of these tune-ups i've mentioned - they may take a while! Next, if your computer has less than 4GB of RAM memory consider adding more memory. Finally, give your system a serious speed boost by adding an SSD (solid state drive). These days you can buy a 240GB SSD for as little as $89 or a 120GB SSD for around $69. Use free software from the SSD maker's website to "clone" your tuned-up Windows onto the new SSD. Keep the old drive for storing data or for installing programs that you don't use often or that won't fit onto the SSD. Then prepare to be amazed at how responsive your system is.

Unfortunately, there isn't a setting where you can change to make your operating system into a 64-bit system.This requires buying a different licence and the hardware to support it. You can purchase a copy of Windows 7 64-bit Upgrade from any computer retailer.

Can a old 3gbs 1.5 terrabyte western digital hdd be cloned to a new 6gbs ssd


not sure exactly what you are referring to
there are ways of cloning an entire disk to another disk or copy the contents of a hard drive to another hard drive

How to Copy Contents of One Hard Drive to Another


There can be several reasons for needing to copy data from one hard drive to another; for instance, if you are migrating data to a new computer or hard drive or if you just want to make sure you have a working backup.


The simplest method is to just drag and drop the contents from one hard drive to the other. But this method will not work well for copying complicated things like operating systems.


To do that, you need to use a hard-drive cloning program.

The cloning program will copy your old hard, in its entirety, to your new hard drive.



Connect both drives to your computer.

This can be done by installing them both inside the tower or by connecting them via USB external enclosures.


Open your operating system's file explorer utility. Select the hard drive you wish to copy. Highlight all of the contents of the hard drive.


Drag and drop the highlighted files to your back up hard drive.


Allow the files to copy over to the new drive. Depending on the amount of data you are copying, the process could take a couple of hours.


Clone the Hard Drive


Download and install one of the many programs that will allow you to clone a hard drive. Cloning a drive makes an exact copy of the drive on your new drive.


It's the only way to accurately back up operating systems, as none of the data is rearranged at all during the cloning process.


Connect both drives to your computer, either by installing them or connecting them via USB external enclosures.


Open your cloning program. Select the "Clone Disk" function.

Choose the drive you wish to clone and the destination drive for the data and start the program.


Do not do anything else on your computer while the drive is being cloned, as it will change the data on the drive and disrupt the process.


Cloning a drive can take a few hours.

Once it is done, you will have an identical copy of the old drive on your new drive.


hope this helps

How to Copy My Operating System to a New Hard Drive


Install the new hard drive into the computer.

Power down the computer completely.


Remove the power cords, the monitor and any peripheral devices.

Unscrew, pop off or slide off the computer case.


Touch the computer chassis

Connect the appropriate cables to the back of the hard drive.


SATA drives take a SATA power cable; IDE (ATA) drives take a power cable and ribbon cable.

If you are unsure of what type of drive you have, consult your manual.


Slide the new drive into an available drive bay, then screw the drive into place.

Make sure all of the cables are secure, then put the case back on the computer.


Connect the power cords, the monitor, and any necessary peripherals.

Power on the computer.


Format and configure the drive as per detailed in the drive's manual.

This process will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer.


Boot to the main drive (the drive with the OS on it).

Download and install a disk cloning software

Select your "Source" drive, as well as any partitions.

Your source drive is the drive containing the OS you want to copy.


Check the hard drive data located to verify that you are selecting the appropriate drive.

Select the "Destination" drive, as well as any partitions.


Your destination drive is where your source drive's files will be copied to.

Click "Next." Confirm that your selections are correct. Click "Next" again.


Review the task summary.

If everything is correct, click "Run Now."


Allow the disk cloning software to perform the cloning process.

Do not turn off the computer during this process.


When the cloning process has completed, right-click "Start," then click "Explorer."

Click the destination drive and make sure all of the files have properly transferred over.


hope this helps

Cannot install whs on ssd using flash drive


I would suggest cloning the OS install.
Install the OS on the 80GB SSD with the Foxconn board that is giving you troubles with the 40GB SSD. Then clone the drives and swap SSDs.
WHS 2011 probably will throw up a flag stating that it needs to be reactivated because of hardware changes, but it should go smoothly.

Running Windows Vista 64x and my nds link driver won't install


If you bought the action replay, plug in the cord and a screen will pop up asking you if you want to search for NDS drivers. It will then say no drivers can be found but if you have the disc that came with your NDS to insert it into the computer. You put the small disc that came with the action replay into the cd rom and it will detect the driver. Then you can install the driver.
