Problems Booting Up

Alistaroc

So I got my new PC parts, and put it all together fine. I cloned my HDD, but when I plugged it in, it wouldn't boot. So, I used my copy of Easy Recovery Essentials, and was able to boot past the BIOS screen, but at the loading screen, it stops, flashes black, then blue with white writing, then stays black, not responding. So I plugged in EasyRE again, but it boots to either a black screen with a pointer, or the default EasyRE background with a pointer, but I can never get past that. Can someone please help me fix this? I really want to get this build done, but I can't call it done until I can finally boot it up.

...I got my new PC parts, and put it all together fine. I cloned my HDD...

  • All operating systems are not designed for major hardware changes. Hence the reason for many recommending a clean install.
  • If intent on avoiding a clean install of the OS, check to see if your cloning software has option similar to bare metal recovery or look up on the internet on tutorials. Example for Win7: SevenForums

Well I guess I'll be re-installing all my games then. :/ Macrium doesn't seem to support a "bare metal recovery."
