Migrate Windows 8.1 from HDD to SSD Error


I’m trying to migrate my Notebook HDD (Asus q550lf-bbi7t07 with Windows 8.1 OEM) to my new SSD drive (SSD Intel 530 Series 240Gb).

I tried to clone the original drive to SSD drive with many tools:

  • List item
  • Intel® Data Migration Software
  • EaseUS
  • Acronis
  • Paragon Migrate OS to SSD 4.0 (I bought the full license)
  • MiniTool Partition Wizard
  • GParted
  • Asus Backtracker (installation failure)

In all cases Windows worked properly for 2 or 3 minutes and then its throws me a “blue screen of death” and redirect me to the BIOS (The BIOS does not recognize the drive until I turn off and turn back the PC, then everything repeats...)

I tried to install a clean Windows 8, but I can't because when I have to select the Partition to be installed, its throws me an error (code 0x80070002)

I think it may be an error related to UEFI.

Any of you went through the same situation as me? What should I do?

In my case, "Samsung Migration" doesn't work on windows 8.1. Ofcourse there's no problem on Win 8. But the "DriveClone" works on Windows 8.1 properly. I recommend you to use it. "Ease us" worked good too.
