Like some of you, I had an error when trying to boot from the SSD. I searched the web and there were many complaints that some systems will not recognize this device and suggest some far-out-there solutions whereas I found a simple, effective and without downloading anything.
Here’s my story:
I cloned my PC (2011 Dell XPS Desktop) using the Samsung Data Migration. Shutdown the PC, opened, swapped the cables from my tired old HDD and plugged them into the SSD. Turned my PC on, and got something like this:
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.
No matter what I did, I could not get my PC to boot. That is until I saw a Reddit article with a simple solution (I have Windows 7 HP 64Bit):
1. Click Start then in the filed type “Backup and restore”
2. On the left side click “Create System repair disc”
Insert a blank DVD and follow the on-screen instructions to create the disc. Once it is done, do not remove the disc from the drive.
Reboot your computer and go into the boot manager, usually F12 and select DVD Drive as the first bootable device instead of your SSD
Reboot again and a program will load from the DVD where you will select “Startup Repair”
Allow “startup repair” to fix the problem and reboot your PC. The PC will now boot from the SSD.
This program fixes the boot sector of the SSD that for some oddball reason is not read by some computers. From now on, your SSD will work perfectly.
I really hope this works for some of you who have this irritating problem. Now I want to show you some pictures of performance.
If you have any questions, please leave me a comment.
